So far my 2 occ. clowns.

Blue hippo tang
Fairy wrasse
1 purple firefish (because I already have it)
So far that's all I have in mind.

And the corals are too many to list :p

Other than the hippo tang I don't see a problem.

Why wouldn't the hippo be a good choice ?

They get over a foot long and swim laps. Look at a smaller tang like a kole or tomini if you want a tang.

Four clowns in a 72g is not gonna work out long term. I wouldnt even put two pairs in my 180g. They will eventually fight and kill one pair off. I had that in my 125g and barely rescued the one pair before they were killed.
:-(
And no blue tang. Sorry. Wway too much a swimmer, too large and ich magnets if not in the right enviroment.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Just telling you the most common thing that happens. I didnt make it up, its true.

There are some cases where it works but 9 times out of 10 there will be issues. If you wanna take the chance thats your call, but I wouldnt do it myself. Watching the one pair beat on my other pair so bad that they were hiding behind my thermometer turned me off to the idea. It was brutal, one of the nastiest things I've seen with my tanks. And I keep some nasty fish so thats saying something

When I'm moving coral from my 29 biocube with stock lighting, to my 72 with 6bulb T5s, do I need lots of acclimation for my corals? The last thing I want Is my brain coral to bleach.
