I'd shoot for 55 lbs. I don't know how much is in there now but add until you reach about 55 lbs. the more the better. Might want to look into a hob skimmer as well

Yeah I'd add at least 25-30 more. I'd skip the tang, they really need a bigger tank but the rest should be fine

Need help with my 55 gal fowler tank

If you do the flame drop the cardinal or damsel. Or both. That should be fine

Nah it is just a lot of fish and I don't like those two haha. But it's up to you. But definitely drop one if you get the flame.
