Do your research and look at where your intended fish feeds. Does it feed in and among the corals, a good indicator that it eats corals ( future reef) or does it feed in the water colume..a good indicator that it does not feed on any corals. Does it eat other fish, if it does all your other fish will be stressed as this fish gets bigger. Does it eat algae...good for a reef tank. Does the fish get nasty as it ages...Most Damsels do get nasty as they age and so on. A little research now can avoid lots of headaches later, not to mention tearing down your reef to catch that rogue fish. IMO

My 3 new bluegreen chromis are schooling/shoaling in my 76 gallon just fine. They are very hardy and are great first fish. And are totally reef safe. They love swimming around the rocks. Mine usually swim into a cranny and the somehow through the rocks to get to the other side. It's hilarious.

Also, you're stocklist is mine exactly, except I'm going to get 2 Ocellaris clowns and no percula, a kole tang, and a diamond watchman goby. All I have are the CUC and the chromis currently.

Just for comparison here is my 54 gallon stocklist:

4 green chromis (all over tank - light blue)
1 flame angel (mid to upper level - orange / red / blue)
1 sixline wrasse (weaves into reef, mid to lower - orange / green / red / yellow)
1 diamond goby (bottom - white / yellow / blue)
1 royal gramma (Bottom to lower mid - purple / yellow)
2 B/W clowns (All over - Black / White / Orange)

And I'm overstocked no matter who you ask - My goal however was to get a fish at all levels of the tank as well as have multiple colors - so far I have lost my flame and my gramma to an unknown at this time cause, but once its straightened out I will try to add the same fish again.

That is kind of what I am trying to do (different colors). I scratched off the goby from the list and replaced it with a flame hawk. My future stockin list for my 76 g will be...

3 Blue Green Chromis (blue / green)
2 Banggai Cardinalfish (black / white)
2 Ocellaris Clownfish (orange / white / black)
1 Flame Hawkfish (red / black)
1 Midas Blenny (yellow)

And then these two, whose colors are hard to describe.

1 Kole Tang
1 Sixline Wrasse
