Tank is cycling and I'm putting together a stocking list...is there a chart or list somewhere that suggests the order in which fish should be added?

Order for ur 75g:
1st: goby, blenny, clown
2nd: royal gramma
Last: six line wrasse, kole tang

Give each group at least 10 days to acclimate before the next intro.

Generally it's less aggressive first; more aggressive last. Goby, blenny and basslet are pretty passive, Tang and wrasse not so much. Clowns in the middle. Take your time and QT if you can.

If the tank is just getting past the cycle, I think it would be a little early to put in a lawnmower blenny unless you can ensure they have enough vegetation to eat. I added my blenny after most of the other fish and have had no problems with it. I have some algae and he has a fat belly. The advice of adding the more aggressive last is good. The others have set their territories. I have a royal gramma that I added after the clowns and I saw very little of it for 2 or 3 weeks. It stayed hidden in the rocks. Now it's out most of the time with the other fish. Based on that, I would think it should be one of the first to be introduced.

also you might want to rethink the 6-line wrasse, IMO. It will have the capability of killing all those fish but the Tang. IME, they are PITAs. Never had the chance to enjoy one as I always had to catch them and rehome them.

Thanks guys, leaning towards a yellow coris wrasse in place of the six line. Seems like a more peaceful option.
