I would just save up for that 75g. Equipment won't cost you much more on a 75g than it would on a 65g. 65g's are also rather tall and don't have much front to back room which makes scaping rock a pain. Your stock list is fine, but I would just watch the gramma after awhile as they seem to get more aggressive as they age and become quite territorial. Not discouraging you from getting it, just keep an eye on it. Good luck, and have fun!

I'd personally reccomend going with 3 chromis.

They are good as a very first addition - tank fillers/testers/starters - because they are so cheap and quite hardy.
They quickly became boring for me - I am now wanting to replace them with something more interesting...


Couple of points to think about:

- What timeframe are you looking at introducing all of these?
There are plenty of articles on how you should add livestock to a cycled tank, but this is also dependant on funds :P

- What do you want in your tank in 1-2 years time? 2-5 years time? even 10+ years? Have a look on google for the life expectancy of the fish.


AA has taught me never to rush when it comes to fishkeeping especially with marine. Patience and LOTS of research from many different sources.

If you do't want the chromis, consider 3 cardinals for your schooling fish. They don't move around much, but they will huddle.

That looks like a good timeline to add fish.

Have a look in the articles section - This is a good one on cycling you tank.
http://www.aquariumadvice.com/articl...ank/Page1.html

Make sure you read a few different articles on how to cycle a tank. This step is VERY important to get off to a good start.

I have also had great results using a product like stress-zyme (live bacteria).
Some hate it, but I swear by it.
