Tank stocking 125

Just having some conversation. Gettingy tank fish stock finished up. I have quite a bit of swimming room in my tank and tons of space for everyone. As well as lots of caves and nooks and crannies for swimming. I have about 200 pounds of dry rock in my tank so who knows what that is in live rock now. 250 maybe more. So I have the filtration. I don't want overstocking any Sayers and such. Just friendly conversation. So my current stock is 2 clowns, swallowtail angel, scopas tang, and a brown shoulder tang. Also a harlequin shrimp 2 emerald crabs and another larger crab can't remember the name. Looks like a wolf spider. 7 dozen hermit crabs 8 dozen snails ( total added who knows what's left of each). Various different corals but the main ones are hammers torches and frogspawn. I think that's it haha but open to any suggestions to finishing off the stocking. From bigger show fish (would only add 1 more) to smaller critters and fish.

Seems like your're building your way to a reef tank. That X's out A LOT of fish.
A cute little Pyramid Butterfly would fit nicely in a tank your size, and they are reef safe.
You should also consider a trio of ANTHIAS.
You have to scout Blue Zoo and Live Aquaria PATIENTLY, though - since they don't carry these fish all the time.
