Possible 75 Gallon Ideas :D

Hi Everyone!!!! I have been contemplating lately because in a few months I will have a 75 gallon and have been thinking of ideas for it! and I came up with this, a reef tank:

Fish:
Tomini Tang
Clarks Clownfish
Spottail Shrimp Goby
3x Banggai Cardinalfish
Helfrichi Firefish

Equipment:
Eshopps Reef Sump RS-100 w/ Eshopps Overflow Box PF-800
Marineland Marine Pro 100 Skimmer
Turbo Twist UV 36 W
Marine Land Reef Capable 48"-60" Led System
Maxi-Jet 3000

Corals:
Bubble Coral (thats all so far)

Invertebrates:
Some sort of anemone

Btw Im looking to keep the Tomini Tang for life because theres only a chance of upgrading

Please I need ur opinions!!!

You will probably need some sort of clean up crew.

Well i'm no expert but that seems like a lot for a 75 gal, I could be wrong though.

You could get some turbo snails they eat most algae.

As long as the algae doesn't grow like crazy, a few turbo snails and hermit crabs should be fine.

Thanks, I got it from a cartoon.

The full name is actually Lord Errorprone The Stumbler.

Don't most people tailor the cuc to the tank based on what happens as they go?

I always order half the crew recommended and that has worked out well for me. Try ReefCleaners.org | Clean Up Crews and Macro Algae - Home, really cheap and great service. I';ve literally gotten hundreds of snails and hermits from there with not one doa.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Thank you guys now wondering because my favorite fish are tangs yet I want them to be happy would a tomini tang have a happy full life in a 75? Because it may be possible to upgrade to a 60" 100.
