First time poster - looking for tips with a new 75g marine!

Hey everyone! First of all, looks like you have a really nice group here. I've already learned a lot just skimming through the forums.

But of course, I want some personalized attention

I'm in the process of setting up a 75g FOWLR tank. I'm pretty comfortable with all the supplies I need to get to keep this thing running nicely, but would really appreciate some input on fish to incorporate.

The current wish list:
2 clowns
1 valentini saddle puffer
1 yellow tang
Maybe a few blue/green chromis (to add movement in the tank)?

Any suggestions for additional or replacement fish are welcome and encouraged. My heart is not set on anything yet, though I do like the clowns, tangs, and puffer.

I know that many advise against a yellow tang in this size tank, though it seems many have one anyway, even in smaller tanks. Also, would invertebrates be an option in this tank, or would a puffer decimate them? What kind of invertebrates would you suggest?

Thanks for the help!

the fish mentioned above should be fine, in regards to the question about the yellow tang, shouldn't be a problem, but I would recommend making the tang the last addition to the tank to discourage any territorial dispute among it and the other fish in the tank. keeping any invertibrate with a puffer, even a smaller species like a valentini, is a potential risk, but you might get away with larger crabs or possibly some urchins assuming you have sufficient algae growth to keep them alive.

the yellow tang would be fairly active. you wouldn't need to add the chromis for action. but your size tank is probably the minimum size for a tang so i'd stick to just whats on your wish list and you should be ok.
