Hey guys so I'm new to the hobby and have had a reefer xl300 set up for a while now.

I currently have
1 Flame Hawkfish
2 Ocellairs clowns
1 Starry Blenny
1 Orchid Dottyback
1 Coral Beauty Angel
1 Yellow Purple Wrasse
1 Blood Shrimp
1 Cleaner Shrimp

I've had no issues so far with my fish everything seems healthy. I'm just wondering if this is too much livestock for a tank of this size. Please let me know as I want what's best for my fish! Many of them are juveniles currently.

Display Tank: 65 gal
Sump: 15 gal
RSK 300 skimmer
Klir Filter Roller
Refugium

I think you are fine, I don’t believe your tank is overstock, but it will all come down to habits, and equipment working properly. I will test the water from time to time to make sure your phosphates and nitrates are in check. If your fish look healthy then probably you are doing what you are supposed to. Do your water changes, add vitamins, like Selcon, to their diet, don’t overfeed them, etc.

I have the same tank and had similar fish and everything was fine till Brooklynella killed everything. Make sure your clowns were thoroughly QT before they got in there. Brook is most likely introduced by clown fish. But with the equipment you have and the size of those fish you should be fine.
