Let’s see the tank. You have a lot of fish so if things are going great I would stick with what you got.
Here is a short video

It really depends on the current size of your fish. I have roughly two dozen fish in my 72” 160-gallon, but my angels are all dwarfs, the pair of tangs are <3” and the rest of the fish are all much smaller.

Plan is convert office to fish room and new tank 120x32x25. That only 2 1/2 years away from now
My 5 years comment was about the fact that in 5 years - assuming your fish survive (sure they will) - you will have more than you can handle - IMHO

Yes not adding anymore at all. More wishful thinking than anything else
dude, don't let these reef heads discourage you. If your system biological can handle it, why not? I assume you got an oversized skimmer. If you're really worried, get you additional filtration. Maybe a roller mat, algae scrubber? I seen alot heaver stocked tank.

Right why not get a nurse shark?
It’s funny when it’s a fowlr, it gets stocked to the brim with fish and everyone is ooohhh and aaahhh’s. But if it’s a reef tank. Two designer clowns, a wrasse and a tang only. Lol

one regal won’t cause his system to crash. His tank will adjust to the increased bioload. Stop overreacting.
