Thats a tough question to answer. It's not really how many, but which ones you "need" to keep and which ones you don't mind getting rid of. Some of those fish will get very large as you know. I would get rid of one or two of the angels. But I know that is hard to do. I think the trigger could go, and possibly the boxfish. It's my understanding that if they die they can leach toxins into the water. Hopefully you have a refuge for your mandarins, otherwise keep an eye on them and make sure your pod population is up. You can by pods online to help maintain your levels.
