Stock list ideas

Im trying to make a stock list for my tank but there are so many cool looking fish i cant decide. I was hoping someone on here would have some good ideas. This is my first tank and its a 75 gallon reef tank with a 20 gallon sump. Id like the fish to not be too difficult to care for and i like bright colors and i would like the fish to be a little different from the norm. Thanks in advanced for the help. Ohh i really wanna have a pair of black clown fish.

Hi. My brother and i have a 66 gallon reef, and pride ourselves on having an unique stocklist. Heres what we've got. All are compatible with eachother, but not inverts. The ones with a * are questionable to be housed with inverts..

Onespot Foxface
Marine Betta *
Large Engineer Goby
B&W Clownfish
Occ. Clownfish
FlameHawk Fish *
Chalk Bass

You could always nix the flame. The betta isnt a definite shrinp killer IMO. i woupd nix the engineer too then..he gets big and is kinda agressive for a small goby/shrimp

Really? Do you mean they are aggressive diggers and would undo the goby's tunnel and make it unpleasant for them, or aggressive as in territorial and will harass the goby/shrimp pair?

Well i would say both actually. They arent really a fish that is known for being agressive, but it is just one of those things your learn after owning an adult you know? He is a big digger, so i cant imagine having another digger like him. He also van be agressive, so i wouldnt feel comfortable having a smaller goby in the same niche, and especially not a little shrimp! Just my thoughts on the matter.
