Help with 75G stocking

I have had a 75G tank set up for around 7 months now and have yet to stock it. it has roughly 60# live rock, 20G sump, 100G skimmer. I need some advice with my stock list.

What I was thinking:
Kole tang
dwarf angel
dwarf lionfish
2x Clowns
mystery or fairy wrasse?

Please let me know your thoughts, I really wanted a rabbitfish but I dont think that is doable in a 75...thanks in advance!

Sounds good aside from the Dwarf lion. They still get big enough to eat clowns even though they are smaller.

I'd recommend a flame angel rather than dwarf for appearance. Maybe 6 line wrasse would look nice

Flame angels are considered Dwarfs.

I agree that the lion is not a good choice, but the rest works. Maybe throw in a Hawk of some kind?

Flame angels are really aggressive. A lemon peel angel would be a better option. A bicolor blenny would be nice.
Rule number one: Always research a fish before you buy it.

Rule number two: Always cycle your tank.

a flame in that size tank would show little to any aggression as long as you add in a young one so it learns who it's tank mates are
I keep both a flame and a coral beauty in the same tank with no aggression

They come in different colors
