i think both of those tanks would be overstocked if you added what you want to add.
i also think you can sell the clownfish instead of killing them and use goldfish to feed the predators. it just seems like a waste of money to me.

I to agree that your planned additions are too much.

Curious about your statement about feeding clown fish to your lions. You serious???? Have you thought about how aquarium enthusiasts would absolutely hate the thought of someone doing that? And laughing about it?

Welcome to AA by the way, but this might not be the right forum for you. Don't get too offended if others find this distasteful.

what kind of clownfish are under a dollar a piece?
i would remove the 6" sailfin tang for sure. i'm not sure what you wish to do with these tanks....are you bored with the fish you have? why would you consider removing fish if you only plan to add more?

well, you can sell those "regular" clowns to wholesale companies that sell to stores, because they sell them for much more. you can actually make a nice living off of them, getting them at that price.

the 125 is fully stocked in my opinion. all of those fish will get large. i wouldn't add anything else except for maybe something that doesn't move much or require much space, like perhaps a stonefish or angler.

the sailfin is too large for a 135 gallon tank now. you can keep all of the rest of those fish together, providing they are removed when they outgrow the tank.
it's not like fresh water in that you can keep a foot long fish in a 125. i know oscars are ok in a tank like that, but salt fish behave differently.
if you truly care to make the fish a healthy environment, that is.

that's up to the individual fish. it's impossible to say. generally, they should.
