Best Mix

Hello,
I'm about ready to put my livestock in over the next month or so. I want to start with 2 Clownfishes. I have a 75 Gal tank with 3" of LS and 75 lbs. of LR. I would like a mix but I want to also have fish that won't kill each other. I do plan on some Invertebrae for the tank. Any suggestions?

Clowns are a good start i would introduce at the same time to try to attemp to make them a pair and less aggresive towards each other. I would then wait a couple weeks for any more introductions to the tank. HTH

Ocellaris clowns are a great community tank (non-aggressive) choice.

When you say invertebrates - do you mean mobile inverts, as in snails, hermits, starfish, etc., or sessile inverts like corals?

Reeflady,
Yes, I'm thinking about mobile inverts although I'm thinking going Reef also.

green chromis are a choice for non aggressive fish as well, along with tangs.

Let's see....when we had our 75g, we had a Yellow Tang, 2 Ocellaris clowns, a Bicolor Blenny .... these are all peacefully community fish.

Firefish are great too ...

Although I do realize we're in the vast *minority*, we've had Green chromis that have been just as aggressive as any other damnsel.
