My fox face eats out of my hand. Lol. I'm very careful of course. My clowns do too and my blue throat trigger. I have a 75 gallon as well. You could also get a marine beta. I have one. She's beautiful.

About like a wasp. I think the saltwater is what makes it so bad. I rinsed mine with fresh water and the sting was gone in about 10-15 minutes. Probably less painful than a wasp. Depends how big it is and how bad they sting you. I've never heard of one "attacking" someone with their spines more like if you bump them. Mine was under a rock I tried to pick up and accidentally grabbed him too. Some people say its a horrible experience but it didn't bother me as bad as some make it sound. He got me with 3 spines on the palm of my hand.

I think the severity varies between people, a worker at my LFS went into convulsions from a foxface sting.

Some great selections with a 75. Get a couple more cardinals and they will school, or maybe an red spotted blenny. Pretty chill fish and will help keep your tank clean. There's always a pair of clowns and an anemone if your lights can handle one.

Get a pair of neon gobies or fire fish. I love the helfrichi fire fish.

No flame with the coral beauty they will fight and way too small for a hippo tang.. for a tang maybe a bristle tooth tang. A helfritche firefish or cheaper a purple fire fish would work. Maybe a jawfish if you have a deep sandbed.
