If you used normal lighting (NO) for the 75G you'd struggle with corals anyway. I recommend at least T5HO's.

I will be doing a 20 gallon sump tank as well, will this help with holding this number of fish?

Bioload-wise.. Maybe. The more water volume.. the more forgiving your tank will be as far as water conditions go.. but you need to factor in the ADULT sizes of the fish you will be keeping. Just because you added 20G of water via a sump, doesn't mean you can fit a dozen tangs in there.

What Kevin's saying is that even though there's more room volume-wise there is extra spatial room for the fish to swim.

How exactly does a QT tank work? I will have a 10 gallon I could use for one.

Basically it's a very basic set-up with a HOB filter and some PVC piping in the tank for fish to hide in. You would acclimate the fish to that tank and then leave it there for 4-5 weeks to observe it for disease and treat it if one appears and to get it eating without competition from other fish.

I'd say Damsel last but too late. Put the Tang and Clown in as the last two.
The Chromis and Firefish and Gramma don't really matter because they are all peaceful fish. I'd say Chromis, Firefish and then Gramma though. Then Clown and Yellow Tang.

damsel is in a different tank right now so it could still go in last, should the salt level be lower to kill off parasites in the QT tank, also if I dont add all the chromis at the same time will they all still school together? Thanks for all the help.
