stocking question...Over stocked?

Ok, first off before I list my stock, I have a 210 gallon with a 45 gallon sump (for water volume) ok, so my stock list is:
1 blue tang
1 yellow tang
1 sail fin tang
1 fox face
... and for the smaller fish....
1 lubocks (so?) Fairy wrasse
1 blue damsel
2 maroon clowns
1 blue spot watchman goby
2 engineer gongs
2 purple fire fish
1 lawnmower blenny
1 coral beauty angel
1 bicolor angel
2 cardinals
..... aside from a clean up crew.... that should be all. It is a reef tank, but corals shouldn't matter for bio load.
What are your thoughts? Do many of my fish are small and won't get very big anyway. Do I still have room or am I already over-doing-it?

I don't think you are overstocked. You will have a nice display of fish.

Cool. Yeah, all my fish are peaceful towards each other and all my water rest readings have stayed at zero since I cycled the tank. Its been over a year now since then.

Make sure you have a great not good but great skimmer if you going to add corals rethink on the angels at least not the ones you picked they eat corals.

Great point greenstreet

Bicolors are one of the worst in regards to eating corals.

I have coral beauties and they have been great. They haven't touched any corals.

wantanabei are nice!! And not nearly as common as flames and coral beauties.

I think the amount I feed the tank makes a difference. I feed 3-5 times a day
