I plan on keeping a mixed reef with soft, lps, and Sps corals in a 75 gallon tank

i will be rehoming all of my current fish from my 40 gallon tank with a possible removal to 1 or 2 of them

current 40 gallon stocking

2 occ. clownfish
1 YWG and pistol shrimp
neon wrasse
pygmy angelfish (may not keep)
midas blenny (may not keep)

the reason for removing the angel and blenny is due to their aggressiveness towards eachother and especially my wrasse

75 gallon stocking plan
2 occ. clownfish from 40 gallon
goby and shrimp from 40 gallon
neon wrasse from 40 gallon
scopas or tomini tang (new)
Starry blenny (new)
3 blue chromis (new)

would you suggest adding, removing or changing anything from this list I’m open to all ideas and suggestions thanks

Pretty understocked imo so you could definitely add more. I’ve got a juvenile tomini in my 75 and he’s quite the bully. Beautiful fish though and cleans everything so he stays for now

You can probably get away with all of those with the execption of the scopas... (i can hear the sirens already LOL)

The tomini might get agressive in a 75tho...

What is your 75 stocking?
I recently lost 5 fish due to an unexplained disease outbreak or something but my ideal stocking once everything settles
Tomini
Midas blenny
Leopard wrasse
Fairy/flasher wrasse
Yellow head jawfish
Pair of Pygmy wrasse
Firefish
Yellow assesor
Barnacle blenny
Some sort of Anthias (1 sunburst or trio of resplendent)

Do different species of wrasse live together well? I’ve never seen more than 1 in a display tank at my lfs

Also, what is your lighting and filtration?

ReefLed90’s. The display is technically a little less than 75 but total volume is like 91. It’s a reefer 350

Totally think you should keep the angel and blenny, they probably will do better in a bigger space! My midas blenny is so cute! They love barnacles too made mine chill since none of the other fish care about his barnacle!

Awesome! Is that a 75?
No Mo (the blenny) is in my 125! He was in my 70 gallon but I had a really huge Ph swing in there (for reasons Im still trying to figure out) so I moved him to my 125 along with other fish that were showing stress. He was perfectly content in there, I just moved his barnacle over to the 125 and he is one happy dude

Mo was also with a dwarf angel as well, they didnt get along until I gave him the barnacle. I think it was cause the angel was picking at the rocks near his hole and Mo got mad. Barnacle solved it! He loves that thing

It's a good list but you could add more. You could probably sneak in a longnose hawkfish. Also, I don't recommend the chromis since they don't tend to be very robust. You could substitute them for some yellowtail damsels. Maybe a pair of yellowhead jawfish to get some more movement on the sandbed.

I had a longnose for a while but I think he overate and died. He was a great fish until then though

What about a tilefish? Idk if you have any experience with them or not?
