    Good afternoon all,
    Just foudn myself tyring to figure out if I have enough of a bioload for my sps tank. Its a 75G which is rather-heavily stocked with various SPS and a handful of shrooms. Flow is 1 gyre 3k on 100% and a large Koralia. My Skimmer is a Reef Octopus 152s. Not sure if there is some magical formula one can use or not and was just wanting to get some opinions. Do I have enough? Could I use some more? Does it make a difference? Thanks in advance :)

    Fish List:
    Large Desjardini Sailfin Tang
    1 Red Anthias
    1 Red Cheek Anthias
    1 Lawnmower Blenny
    3 Blue Damsels

    I wouldn’t add any more large fish like tangs, but you can add some more small fish with no problem.

    Wrasses are always great additions but the only thing to worry about is having a system that can handle the bio-load. I'm fish heavy but my system is setup to handle the heavy bio-load.

    I do agree with this, but I didn’t see it in the picture so it’s obviously not too big. While it’s always better to start off right from the beginning, I don’t think it’s too big a deal to have a sailfin in there provided it can be moved to a bigger tank once it hits 7” or so.
