pecking order help...

I am about to start adding fish to my cycled 125 gallon FOWLR tank. Right now I have 1 damsel in there. I want some clownfish (regular nemos) and dont know how many to start with. Also I want it to be a community tank first of all. What other fish do you guys recommend? Need to know what order to buy these guys in so I dont end up with a bunch of dead fish.
Thanks

what kind of damsel do you have, and other than the clowns, what other fish do you have in mind?

sorry forgot that.....I have one yellow tailed damsel. I dont know what other fish really. I thought about maybe a tang but want to make sure I have enough room for whatever fish to swim in. Its a 125...not real big but big enough I think....Just some colorful fish. I saw a couple of clowns in with a trigger this weekend at a place of business. Just got me to thinking.

problem number 1 - least aggressive fish go in fish, most aggressive go in last. You have a very aggressive damsel (I would even say EVIL) and anything else that comes in that is not considerably bigger will get picked on by it. Best thing to do is figure out the fish you would like, then start buying the most docile ones and putting them in first. Take the damsel out until you have nothing left but bigger, or more aggressive fish to go in.
