Am I overstocked?

I have a 6ft 125gal with a 45 gal sump.
Current residents:
Yellow Tang - 3.5 inches
Bursa Trigger - 2.5 inches
Blue Regal Tang - 2.5 inches
Two False Percula Clowns- one 2 inch one 1.5 inch
Six Line Wrasse - 1.5 inch
Blue Jaw Trigger - 3 inches
Snowflake Eel - 5.5 inches

This is what I currently have and all I am going to have. Do you guys think this is too much for this tank?

I dont think so. I would say thats pretty minimal.. However, it would also depend on your water change frequency as well as your filter systems efficiency and your feeding habits..

I don't think so if you have a good skimmer and keep up your weekly water changes.

not even close...assuming you are skimming your water and not overfeeding.

3 fish can be too many if people overfeed.

You should be fine. I would stop adding larger species and concentrate on smaller fish to fill the rest in.

I think you aren't now but will be when all your fish grow up.
