i have a 60 gallon, thats a bowfront and measures 4ft long with the following fish

4 labs 3" each
1sunshine peacock 5"
1 lemon jake 4"
1 eureka red 3"
1 taiwan reef 4"
1 strawberry peacock 4"
1 S. fryeri 5"
1 D. compressiceps 2.5"

I know the fryeri, compressiceps, and tiawan reef will get too big, if i move out of my apartment before it happens ill get a bigger tank, if not theyll go back to the store, i go there weekly so they dont have a problem taking fish from me. there is little aggression in the tank, except maybe the sunshine and lemon jake going at it. water is changed weekly and filtered with an aquaclear 110 and rena xp3.

I don't think you're overstocked right now. As you mentioned earlier, the compressiceps would be my long-term concern due to its adult size. But, it sounds like you already addressed the issue. Just keep up with the water changes.

could i get away with adding a few more pecocks? i would like to add some different colors since yellow is the main color in the tank.

I don't think I would. As the other poster stated, your fine now, but I think adding more might be pushing it. Maybe if you got rid of the compressiceps and/or the freyeri. I would dump the freyeri before the T Reef. Freyeri can be pretty mean; T Reefs are pretty docile in comparison, plus they are harder to find (at least for me).

its weird that everyone says that freyeri are mean fish, *** had mine for a month without a single problem, even though there are other blue fish that resemble him

james1983, I would say you stock list is fine, and if I were you I would feel fine adding a few more peacocks. The compriceps grows rather slowlky and my fryeri is not aggresive at all either. Your stock is similar to mine but I have more fish in a slightly smaller tank, and I plan on adding more, probably a calvus and 1 or 2 others.
Just my 2cents
