Foxface Lo Tank Size Question

I currently have a fully grown scribbled rabbitfish who is about 6 inches long and bought a foxface lo a few months ago that is about 4 inches long and is growing fast. My tank is a custom made 165 gallon that is 4 feet by 2.5 by 2.5 feet and I am worried that the tank will be too small for the fully grown foxface if it gets bigger than the scribbled rabbitfish. I am aware that the minimum tank size stated online is said to be 125 gallons but I am worried that the foxface may struggle in my tank with 4 feet of horizontal swimmimg space.

The other inhabitants are:
Copperband Butterfly
Tomini Tang
Dusky Wrasse
6 Line Wrasse
2 Bangai Cardinals
3 Clownfish

Any thoughts on if this stocking of the foxface with the other fish is viable for the long term would be great.

Foxface Lo should be OK in your tank. They do grow quickly if you feed them well.
