How many fish?

I want to add more fish to my 75g reef tank. I currently have a brain coral, polyps, frogspawn, leather coral, feather duster, bubble coral, mushrooms, and a colt coral. I also have a green mandarin, six line wrasse, an flame angel, and a goby of some sort, with assorted shrimp and a clam. Can I add more fish and any suggestions? By the way, the durso standpipe has completely eliminated the gurgling noise in my tank! Great advice![/list]

A nice pair of tank raised true or false Percula Clowns would go nice in there or a firefish, Royal Gramma. Or even a small school of Chromis would be a cool addition.
You got a little more room, 2-3 smaller fish IMO, if you want to stay on the conservative side of stocking.
Or if you want a more aggresive fish, how about a Yellow or Purple Tang?

I have great luck with all kinds of corals but not so much with fish, other than the green mandarin. I've tried yellow tang twice without much success. I forgot to mention the beast - my green brittle starfish - who devours any sickly or slow moving fish he can get a hold of! Thanks for the suggestions. I was thinking about the chromis. Also how will the clowns do without an anemone? I don't have a chiller and have watched a few anemones die a slow death.

Clowns will be fine without an anemone, thats one reason I think he mentioned tanked raised.
I have 2 in my fowlr and the swim around all day and seem happy.
