Thanks for the input guys and gals...I have since caught all but 4 damsels (2dominoe, 1 purple with yellow tail, 1 tiger stripe)...now those 4 seem to be the most peaceful as well do you all think that I should do away with them as well???

**correction**- only 2 domino damsels remain with the 2 clownfish and the dominoes are significantly smaller than the clowns...should I be ok now? Or remove the dominoes as well?

If you could remove them all I would but it isn't a must in a tank that size but keep in mind for the future when you stock a tank the reason so many people will tell you to try and figure it out before you begin is because there is a proper order to add your livestock..you will want to begin the the least aggressive and least territorial first building up to you meanest fish..do it the other way and you'll see a lot more aggression and possible death/disease

Thanks I appreciate it...I could get these last two easily because they don't hang out in any rocks but they honestly were the least problematic of the damsels I think I will let em stick around for now...I'm glad I got this advice now before I added tons of rocks and nooks/crannies with it...the clowns already have moved into a cave the damsels were protecting the last 2 days..I will be sure to do a lot more research before I get my next fish...any suggestions on what would be a good next move?

Cool thanks for the advice..I have been doing a lot of research on reef tanks and am taking into consideration a lot more factors before making decisions on this...I am not even sure what I have in mind for a "must have" fish at this point, but, when I do I will post pictures and keep asking questions I'm sure...thanks again for all the help and pointers if it wasn't for all the advice I dont know where I would be at with all this right now...

Start searching around on liveaquaria. This is a great help when trying to find "that fish" or "that coral" that you just have to have.

I might not be of much help with this as I enjoy "nano fish". Might not be what you are looking for since you have a 75, where mine is a 55, but allow me to suggest the fish I just ordered for half price off saltwaterfish.com.

It's a known fact it works don't be jealous, and for the guy who started the thread do you and be happy you know what's best for your tank your tank. And another thing ohhhhh noooo a few damsels are going to die flush them

The single most important thing in a reef tank setup up is - wait for it - arrogant replies. Seems like you must be arrogant to have a good tank. Why dont you people get over yourselves and just help

I don't know where you got that people were being arrogant. The OP asked questions and asked for advice and that's what she got..I may have missed something but I don't see anyone trying to act "high and mighty" just giving the best information they can to make this as easy, fun, and save as much time and money as possible..your new to this site obviously but if you would give it a chance you would realize 99% of the people on here legitimately just want to help but as with everything there will always be that 1%
