Starter fish

I was wanting to know what type of starter fish can I put in my tank now. I currently have a green brittle starfish in there now.

I have a 75g. It has some really nice live rock pieces in it. I am looking at getting a bubble tip anemone in the future.

Im sure someone will post a link but bta's are very hard to care for and need pristine water and an established tank ( longer then a year)..

Nems require pristine water and it's usually best to put them into a tank thats been established at least 6 months to a year. You also will require high lighting, what are you running for lights now?

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