Not too bad. I would maybe think about one of the gobies. That many in a 75 might fight. How about a pink spotted goby instead of those 3. Just a suggestion. BTW welcome to AA

I agree with melosu! Drop 1 goby and I personally think 1 tang in a 75 gallon. Especially if you want corals. If you want to go FOWLR that is fine. With corals the less fish the better.

I'd drop the hippo tang, add an ocellaris to form a pair, and add a clown goby or two. Fishload isn't going to impede coral health unless they are being picked upon or you have some major waste producers...stock away

You can get a shrimp goby that can pair up with a pistol shrimp.

But since your using a 40 gallon tank you can also go with the Fluval 305 but I was getting the Fluval 405 for the same price as the 305.... Your choice.... Good Luck....
