what fish to start with?

I'm planning on putting a fish in my tank within a week or 2 and wanted to get some ideas of some good fish to get. I have a 75 gallon and want fish that have good colors. Currently have no fish and eventually want corals so need fish that will be reef safe

A clownfish would be a good start. Also a blenny or Goby. On the goby a pink spotted goby really looks nice.

As mentioned before, clownfish are a good pick. I would go with an occellaris because they tend not to be as aggressive as some of the other kinds of clowns like the Maroons. There are all different kinds of Occellaris clowns too.
