your overstocked the way it is. what do you plan on upgrading to, what type of fish you plan on adding, what other fish are in the tank now, what type of filtration?

the best way i cant honestly put this is that your looking at failure. seriously, when these animals mature there are going to be major issues all over the place. can you bring some into a LFS for store credit, or re-home them to a good home?

with all due respect to you, 12 angels, 5 tangs, a trigger and whatever else is in the tank is overstocked.

how long has this tank been set up, does it have live rock (and how many pounds) and what are your exact water parameters? (ammonia,nitrite,nitrate,pH,SG,alk,calcium,mag)

because someone else is doing it doesnt make it right. are you protien skimming and what kind of skimmer?

One fish is rights i'm afraid. If you are wanting a tank as stocked as you have you're going to want something closter to a 500g to an 800g. That'll give your fish ample room to grow as well as handle the pollution issues that you're going to be facing down the road if not soon. The fish you have selected are going to get really big and yes you may have success now, but i'm sure they aren't as big as they will get... and that could lead to isses. Now i do use the word could because we all know that fish have the tendancy to prove even the best wrong sometimes.

5, 1'+ tangs in a 220 is pushing it, if not over doing it. then even subtract the space lost with live rock and your left with even less room for swimming
