What and how many fish when cycling reef 80 Gallon

Hey all, I'll be setting up an 80 Gallon tank on Christmas day when I get the rest of my supplies. I got a bottle of Fritzyme 9 and I am wondering how many fish and what type should I be tossing in with the tank cycle for the ammonia.

My first assumption is getting atleast one clown which I want regardless.

I highly suggest not doing a fish in cycle. We have articles on cycling in our articles section, to which I prefer the shrimp method. This way you won't have to do continued water changes to ensure that the ammonia/nitrite levels aren't burning the fish's gills and killing it, along with saving cash on the water changes needed to maintain those levels and then also shorten your cycle time.
