    What are you interested in?
    (I know nothing on SW tanks, btw, just asking for other members to help better) LiterallyHydro can help.

    Are you doing a predator tank or a reef tank? I can't help with predator tanks but I would personally do a pair of clowns, small group of chromis, yellow tang and a Mandarin goby.

    Mandarin gobies need large tanks with large refugiums and a well established colony of pods though.

    I was thinking maybe 3clowns, a yellow tang, a foxface rabbit fish, and a porcupine puffer. Is this ok or am i doing something wrong?

    Three clowns are bad. Two will pair up and the last will be bullied to death.

    In the 75? If there are fish in there already you should have specified so we could be of assistance.

    I don't think I would do a porcupine puffer fish. They grow pretty big and need a larger tank. You said your 3 clowns are doing good? I have heard of 2 clowns bullying the other one like they stated above.

    A trigger fish would decimate any small fish or inverts. Are you going reef or FOWLR?

    A Niger Trigger would require a much larger tank. I think most species do.

    So you think a porcupine is not good?

    3 clownfish ( if it works okay)
    1 one spot foxface rabbit fish
    A school of green chromis or cardinals fish
    1 goby of some kind
    1 royal gramma
