Provided you have at least a 125 gallon tank, these are fine. If your aquarium is smaller than this, then mixing 2 Tangs together will prove high risk. Also, the Regal Tang is a large growing Tang which is best given a 125 gallon tank for grow out purposes.

What size tank do you have?

1.024 to 1.028, personally. It is all a personal preference.

I run 1.023 to 1.024. You can add inverts at any time.

Also, I see no reason to reduce the number of Firefish. You can add 3 and still have room for a Flame Angel.

Keep in mind, you are REALLY pushing your luck with compatibility. Centropyge angelfish species and Zebrasoma tangs often have compatibility issues. The same is true for adding 2 Tangs to a 75 gallon tank. So, put these issues together and you could be looking at a high risk situation.

yes i knew about the tangs and not about the angels so instead of a flame angel could i add 3 pajama cardinals in stead if so would they school with the baggai's

I have never kept Pajama and Baggai Cardinals together. I really have no idea.
