stock list- don't want to overcrowd

ok....I've upgraded from a 46 gal to a 125gal w/160lbs of lr - looking to finalize my stock list- heres what I have

yellow tang
2 O clowns
Diamond Gobie
regal tang
4 chromis
6line wrasse
(cleanup crew...lost count of snails & various hermits)
2 cleaner shrimp

Here's what I'd like to add:

sailfin tang
flame angel
lawnmower blenny

would love to add a mandarin but, i've heard so many bad stories, I'm waiting and thinking on that....

The tank is not drilled...I've got plenty of circulation, 2 HOB remora skimmers and a fluval fx5 cannister filter-

would these additions overcrowd my tank?- right now most are juvinile but, i don't want to get into trouble when they mature

That is what I was going to say that I believe if you add those by the time your current tank mates grow it will be pretty crowded. I think you are just about loaded. You might be able to add one or two more. Hope all goes well.

Agreed, I say you are good where you are especially with fish that get large and agressive as tangs.

I would definitely leave out the sailfin tang.

I`ve had three tangs before in my 125 and had them for a while. The key is to get them different shapes and colors and size. Dont get similar looking tangs.
