Reef friendly fish

I was wondering if anyone could recommend some fish they have had positive experience with in a Reef tank. After a distressing encounter with some new soft corals and my Blue fin damsel I had to find him a new home, and now find myself with only a fiji blue damsel, Clarkii clown, and algea blenny in a 75g. This is a VERY young reef tank with hopes of future growth and more coral additions. At the same time I would like to add maybe 1 or 2 more fish to the picture. I've read several articles and seen charts on reef/fish compatibility that all seem to contradict each other. Any suggestions??

I have a Yellow tang in my reef tank and love to watch it. I also have a young reef tank. I went back and forth over what to do for a long time and got mixed advice about the tangs. In the end I trusted Fenner who says that it is the best reef fish there is ( paraphrased ). It is a beutiful fish and a joy to watch. As a bonus it also nips at the algae to help keep it clean. There are also some really beautiful wrasse out there, some are reef safe and some are not. I like them because like they tang they move around alot and keep the tank looking lively.

Happy fish shopping
