Help with fish selection?

I'm looking for some help with fish selection in my 75gal tank. I am looking to have coral. My tank has a yellow tang I know that my tank is on the small size for one but seams to be fine. I also have a three line damsel, a bright blue damsel, a blue headed wrasse. I had a anthias but found him dead this morning. I also have two blennies and some snails, and a fire shrimp. I am looking for some suggestion and any help would be greatly appreciated thanks.

I have a 75 gallon also and would not have damsels in it at all. They are mean and probably stressed your anthias to death. I have a coral beauty right now and a pair of black saddleback clowns. My next additions are going to be a bicolor foxface and a two spot bristletooth tang. Maybe a trio of blue reef chromis.

Thanks yeah everything was fine for about three weeks with the anthias but I guess they stressed him out. I built a box to catch the damsels. I bought the tank from a friend and they were in there. I don't want aggressive fish in my tank.

You might want to rethink the blue headed wrasse also. I don't think they directly eat corals, but will dig and upset rockwork as well as eating shrimp and crabs.

You already have a tang, but in my 75 I have a Kole tang, ocellaris clown, bangaii cardinal, ochre-striped cardinal, a blue sided fairy wrasse, and a royal gramma. (I think on the gramma - I added him to the tank Saturday and haven't seen him since. I hope he's just hiding somewhere.) I'd like to add a black occellaris and a watchman goby of some sort. I reacd about another memer having like 5 flasher wrasses and 3 fairy wrasses in his 150. I may try to add a Carpenter's wrasse at some point. I'm also considering a trio of chromis or pajama cardinals.
