Not too much if you have a 200+ gallon tank, which I hope you do, or at least close to that.

You said "the last week", please tell me you didnt add 18 fish in one week?

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

The cowfish is the one that screams out for a larger tank, check around and you'll see what I mean. Recommended for 250g tanks. The scooter, the mandarin and the butterfly are all very very difficult fish to keep, not much more to say about those guys other than good luck.

Four months is not a great way to "succeed" with them. I had my mandarin for several years and she recently died, I don't really think i had much success with her to be honest.

But again, keep an eye on those guys, if you have them eating prepared foods then nice job, or you got lucky. lol

I would say over stocked by a fair bit you really don't want that cow fish to be stressed either I'm pretty sure they can release a toxin into the tank that could wipe it out completely... What's your filtration also could we know your Params just to see how you bioload is coping with the fish

The tangs and betta get pretty decent sized.. The betta might get aggressive when it gets bigger.. Butterflys are hard to keep in general.. Did u get them at a LFS or online?
