Sorry, I goofed but I definately agree with Quarryshark, Holacanthus tricolor
is definately a bad choice for anything other than FO
As far as the other fish, check at the top of the compatibility chart I linked to. There is a column that helps with reef safe fish species. Try to stick with the "Y" only choices. There are a few other species that are completely coral safe but not mobile invert safe and vise versa so the ones labeled "C" may still be an option, just not many.
Any ideas on starter coral or an anemone(i know you are supposed to wait a year)
You don't need to wait a year on most corals species but I would wait on the anemone. A very loose guideline would be soft corals 2-4 months, LPS
corals 4-8 months and SPS
corals 8-12 months. It all really depends on the stability of the tank, the tank set ups ability to properly provide for certain species and your understanding or their care.
A good place to start is usually leather corals, shrooms
and zoanthuds. Most are fairly hardy and forgiving of small mistakes.
