1 blue tang
2 percula clownfish
2 fire gobys
1 black ray prawn goby
1 mandarin
1 royal gramma

I would stick to something small if you add anything else,If that blue tang is a Atlantic Blue and it's a juvie,then it's going to get big pretty quick (It will be too big for a 75 gal and you will need to remove it) and it will have a lot of bio-load in the tank.

The risks of mixing more than one dwarf angel are serious... often they fight to the death. However, I love my flame and, even though some have had trouble with them nipping clams and corals, mine has been a model citizen. Bangaii cardinals are pretty cool to me also. I'd stay away from any more tangs... a 75 is, in the opinion of many, too small to house any but the smallest tangs (such as Tomini).

You will need a very mature 75 with lots of rock and a good pod population if that mandarin is to live.

I'd personally

....... Just throwing this out there, but what about supporting the tank bred/raised initiative and buy based on that? Every fish you don't buy from the wild is one more fish still decorating the ocean.

Climbing off soap box now......
