Stocking list for a 75 gallon tank

What are your feelings on a 75 gallon reef with a yellow tang, chainlink eel, and a lion? What other fish would you add?

I guess those would do Ok but I would not add any more than that with those three.

Although the eel and lion are "reef safe" I would not have them in my reef. Reef tanks require far better water quality then you are going to be able to maintain with those two in there. They are messy eaters and get kinda large. I would forgo both of them in that size tank.

It's not just the waste they produce. Its what you have to feed them. I'm not saying you can't do it, but if you want to maintain a reef system with corals having them will make it more of a challenge.
