Seems pretty full. I'd get rid of the Butterfly and Flame Angel.

yea I am considering not getting the butterfly. I pretty much have all the inverts for the tank already. As soon as the house is done I get my bigger tank

Also whats the point of the Blue Damsel? They just get aggresive and territorial. So I reckon ditch that too. If you took away the Angel, Butterfly and Damsel you would have ten fish, which is a bit over but with a good skimmer and good bio-filtration (macro algae and LR and sand) is do-able. Make sure you get a good skimmer.

13 fish in a 75 gallon is too much. What kind of filtration will your tank have. Not trying to be bad person here but you`ll have problems with fish health and nuisance algeas due to excessive nutrients from a large bio load.

I was thinking I might be ok because many of them are very small.

They grow quick enough. I think that you need to ditch either:
1) The damsel, butterfly and angel (and then be religious about PWCs and a really good skimmer.)
2) The Damsel, Butterfly and the 5 Chromis. <---- That's the best way IMO.

I was thinking about getting a 90 instead (same floor space) but people talked me out of it because the light wouldnt be as good if I decided to do some corals or something like that.
