Help with stocking

What would be some good fish for a 75 gallon full reef? Just starting so I don't have anything in there except CUC. Looking at a kole tang then of course clowns, possibly frostbite if reef compatible. I have more then enough filtration and skimming to handle a large bio load. What would be good additions and what order should they be introduced?

Fish choices are very personal so it's hard to advise on that, but check liveaquaria and search by your tank size. In general you should add your peaceful fish first and most aggressive last. Best advice I can give in regards to stocking is do your research BEFORE you buy, and go slow, be sure to give the fish time to adapt to your system and your bio filter time to catch up as well.

Here is general thought will probably switch out some before list is final. Have lots of fish we like that we need to research more to make sure will fit with our eventual reef as well as the other tank mates.

Don't do the coral beauty. They are reef compatible with 'caution'...I regret putting mine in as it has turned into a bully of fish and nipping at coral after years of no issue. Not worth it.

No, reef safe refers to fish that won't eat your corals or inverts.
