Yeah the bacti spread pretty fast any new surface will get covered in a few days When stocking the new tank go slow the bacti will need time to catch up to the new bio load.

I'll be putting only 1 fish in there, I'm having trouble with stocking, I want a maroon clownfish for sure. So I gotta stock my other fish around him because he aggressive.. What aggressive reef safe fish do you suggest? I was thinking a dottyback or a basslet (royal gramma). What else?

I would add the clown last as for the other fish royal gramma's hide a lot any of the dotty backs are a good match for the clown just keep in mind they do like shrimp This one gives the color of a RG but can be a mean little fish
Purple Stripe Dottyback

I'm falling in love with the kole tang... He wouldn't work in my tank right? I'd get the maroon clown, the orchid dotty back and the kole tang. That's it. The rest of my tank is going to be coral and an anemone

Yeah it's taller than I expected. I get better coverage. I might get another taotronic unit, or I'll buy 2 par 38s and hang them on each side just to add some colour. It is only a 12 inch tall tank. Par38s are strong enough for montis at that height
