Good. Go get a Lunare wrasse and call it a day.
Not too expensive and hard to kill. Perfect for a 75.
I think these get about 10". "SEMI-AGG", so I'd put
him with a few triggers. This is hands down the prettiest
of all wrasse.

The leopards are nice but you would need hella live rock w/ sponges. They usually starve them self to death in the home aquarium. They mean as hell too for their size.

Nemo clowns are pretty hardy but all (ALL) tang/surgeonfish (dory) are "ICK" magnets.

A 12 gallon nano cube would house a pair of percula clowns, live rock and coral.
$150 new under $100 used (CL).

A fish which is easy to maintain in home aquarium due to their ability to adapt to a wide range of water parameters.

i only quoted teh above due to my response is for this:

yes clowns are hardy fish they can survive through the cycling process of high ammonia, nitrite , and nitrate cycles. i have been told that clownfish are actually in the damsel family, and are peaceful. i will say some clowns get down right mean gold dtripe maroons, adn fire clowns are examples of mean ones. i suggest you use false percs (ocelleris) or true perculas for tank cycling if you are going reef

check for a bio cube, they are an al incluusive system. everything you need is contained in one packge. Most tangs are considered to very suseible to getting ick. The blue hippo tang, is well known for getting ick very easily.
