What can I put in my 75 gallon tank

I already have two yellowtail damsels(did not use them to cycle tank). I want to put a huma huma trigger along with a puffer or a tang. Can I do this? Thanks

Most places say at least a 75 gallon tank for the trigger. Your inverts will be limited. I would suggest a Yellow eyed Kole tang.

I should be ok with a huma and 1 tang to go along with my damsels?

I just want two or three fishes in my tank.I know a overpopulated tank can cause serious problems. I heard from some people online humas should start in at least a 100 gallon tank for maturation. Will there be a problem when I introduce the huma with the yellow tail damsels. I hear damsels can be aggressive also? Thanks

Damsels can be very aggressive, but it all depends on the fishes personality. Has he attacked anyone already? If he has that's a big warning sign. I have a blue damsel myself, and even though he was in the tank first, he's never been aggressive towards any of his tankmates. As far as the humu trigger, a 75 should be fine and you can have them with a puffer or tang as long as the humu isn't bigger then them. If he is, then when you drop them in, he'll be thinking lunch.

Here's a little info on the Humu:

If you get a trigger or a puffer, then you won't be able to keep shrimp/snails/crabs as they will become food.
