fish suggestions??

i started cycling the tank and now i have to think what fish i want in it....

its a 75 gal by the way...

i have no idea what to put in it since i know theres alot of compatibility stuff...

i like the dwarft lions and snowflake eels.....
but then i also like tangs and clownfishh....

i hate it in the lfs because most of the time they will thell you that everything is compatible with everything just to sell u more and that you can put 1000 fish in your tank etc.....

so what fish can i put with option a (dwarft lion - eel) and with option b (tangs-clowns)

thanks for the helpppppp

IMO a Regal tang is not a good choice for a 75.

I think a lion and snowflake eel may be it, big bioload. If you do clowns and tangs, there are more options. 2 tangs may be stretching your limits though for a 75 gal. Here are some tangs to look at.

The lion will eat the clowns when it gets larger. You could have the eel with a tang and several smaller fish. But not too small because the SFE when it gets larger may eat small fish. I have a SFE with some perc clowns and they get along fine.

is there a problem in getting 2 dwarft lionfish?
and what if I introduce the lionfish and clownfish at the same time when they are both the same size???

Its not a territory issue... its a predatory issue...

I'd stick with only one lionfish in a 75g, and possibly list the equipment you are using for filtration.

Send a message via Yahoo to quarryshark
agree with above. You need to decide what kind of system you want. agressive, semi, reef, etc.
I would study some more.
This may help
