Still researching what exactly I ultimately would like as my complete lineup for my 75g FO tank but I think Im just about there minus a few unaswered questions. Having recvd some feedback from my initial lineup I've revised things quite a bit and opted to start a new thread. My biggest concern now is would I be overstockung my tank. Please take a gander at my list and tell me your thoughts both regarding stocking limit of a 75 and anything else you notice for my lineup. On a side note Im running UV so I limited my cleanup crew within the roster.

1x pinkface wrasse -goes in last :(
2 ocellaris clown
1x bicolor angel
1x One Spot Foxface
1x Blue reef chromis (despite schooling I read by many, it does well solo)
1x Black & White chromis
1x Black Sailfin Blenny (cleanup crew)
1x Royal Gramma Basslet
1x Firefish dartfish
1x Citrinis Clown (poison) Goby
1x Green Clown Goby (not sure about it with the citrinis)
1x electric blue hermit crab (clean crew)
1x halloween hermit crab(clean crew)
1x purple short spine pincushion urchin(clean crew)

Thoughts? Are the hermits ok with this wrasse? Could I add a coral banded shrimp with the pinkface wrasse, Im assumong not and that it would be eaten? Do you think I have the right amount of cleanup crew given the UV, to little or to much?

Thanks in advance!

Is the pinkface wrasse a thallasoma species wrasse. If so I wouldn't add it at all. They are super active and pretty predatory. They will eat the inverts and maim many of your fish. I would go with a flasher or fairy wrasse instead. But other than that it is a nice list

I really want that fish and will likely omit others before it.

Its your tank, do what you want. If you do the wrasse, don't do the gobies or inverts. If you do the six line, understand that you are still getting an aggressive fish, only in a smaller package.

The amount of fish is fine. They are all small except the foxface. The only problem is the wrasse. I would say that the list is fine even if you want corals( minus the angelfish)

Ummkay round n round I go, looks like I may have found a compromise I would be ok with:

Original list
+1 coral banded shrimp
+1 grey head wrasse and /or 1 hoevens wrasse
