Tank is Ready - Stocking Questions

My 65 gallon is cycled and ready. Right now I just have live rock in there. I am pretty sure that I have a tiny bit of Aiptasia I need to take care of.

What is a good amount of stock to start with? I was going to buy some snails and hermits today. How many should I buy of each for a 65 gallon? I was also going to pick up a pair of Clowns.

Main main goal is to start a nice reef. Can I put any type of corals in there yet? What are some inexpensive starters that look nice?

If it was me I would just put fish in there first and get the tank to stabilize. In a couple months you should be able to start off with some easy corals. If you get a pair of clowns make sure they are a mated pair.

IMO you should forget the flame angel if you want a nice reef like you said in your OP.
