Hey guys

So from the very beginning of venturing this hobby(6 months ago), ive been told add fish slowly so you dont crash your tank.

Now it just came to mind while i try to organise my next fish to add, id like a group of fish like anthias, cardinals, chromis etc

The questions is, if i buy 5 or 6 etc of these fish, will it affect the bioload of my tank and cause it to crash ?

I have a 90 gallon tank and have 2 clowns, 2 mollies and a blenny and cuc

They will be fine to add all at once as none are large fish so the increased bioload is gonna be relatively benign. Now if you were adding that amount of triggers at once I would say add them slowly over the course of a month or so not all at once.
