    I am in the beginning stages of setting up my 75 gallon tank and hoping for advice on fish stocking.
    I know that adding fish should be done over a period of time. I was thinking maybe one medium sized fish such as a Butterfly or Dwarf Angel and maybe a couple of bottom dwellers such as a Lawnmower Blenny, a Goby and or Jawfish. Or instead of the one bigger fish a small group of Pajama Cardinals.
    Any thoughts or suggestions are warmly welcomed.

    Slow is the key. Angels are best in an established tank so best left towards the end. Do you want any clowns?

    Thanks for your input on the angels.
    I was thinking about clowns but I wanted to wait until tank is mature enough for a bubble tip anemone, but is that not necessarily the case?

    Clowns don't need a nem. Mature tank for a nem yes. Clowns are a hardy fish and usually one of my first additions. Add a pair together. Ideally young tank raised clowns are best to start
