    I am thinking about adding a few anthias to my 90 gal reef tank but don't want to overload my bioload. Based on my current list of fish do I have a heavy, medium or light bioload?
    1 5 inch Blue Tang
    1 4.5 inch Yellow Tang
    3 1.5 inch blue/green chromis
    1 2.5 inch flame angle
    1 2.5 banner fish
    1 4 inch lawnmower blenny
    1 2 inch Green Mandarin
    1 3inch 6 line wrasse
    2 2.5 inch clown fish

    I would say medium/medium-heavy. The two tangs are herbivores and they have pretty "clean" digestive habits. By clean, I mean they are pretty efficient eaters, so there is less waste than another fish comparably. Also, a few of your other fish are scavengers.

    I would agree with adam. Medium to Heavy
    I would say that you would definatly be on the heavy side if you added anthias.
    I would say you would be okay as long as you have a good skimmer
