4 foot tank about 72 gallons with a 20 gallon sump.

Current stock
Tomini tang
Helfrichi Firefish
Pair of Pygmy Possum Wrasse
Barnacle Blenny
Midas Blenny
Yellow Assesor
Mandarin Dragonet (in refugium fattening up)

So a bunch of smaller fish and a juvenile tang. Biggest fish is the Midas blenny. Thinking about ordering from dr reefs
1 sunburst Anthias
1 Lineatus Wrasse
1 yellow head jawfish

This would do it for me. Does it seem overstocked? Everything right now gets along great. The tang has been a bully to new additions but it lasts a day or so.

This seems good to me, I’ve got 19 fish in a similar sized tank (and two of them are larger species that max out at around 6-7 inches).
Personally, I would add in one larger fish, and it would have to be one of these guys for me.

For me it would be one of these species specifically however I’m more suggesting Rabbitfish/Foxfaces in general. I love these and whilst they do have venomous spines, it takes a lot for them to use them as a ‘weapon’ - Any Fish generally has venom as a last resort method. Rabbitfish are the shyest of them all IME.

Then I’d probably add one other Fairy/Flasher Wrasse to go with the Mccoskeri and get it to display more. I would personally add in a Paracheilinus rubricaudalis. But this is up to you :)
