    Ive got 5 damsel starter fish for a 75 gallon tank. I want to start putting bigger fish such as triggers, tangs or wrasses. Are any of these fish compatible and are there others?

    Damsels will be compatible with any of the "aggressive" or large fish that you listed. Be careful stocking though, you added a lot of fish at once. You should only add one fish every three weeks or so, especially in the beginning. And 5 damsels do count towards your bioload and will restrict the maximum number of fish you can keep in the tank. If you want to keep more than a few fish, you should catch and return the damsels to the store.

    What kind of damesels are they because some can grow up to be from 2 inches to 8 inches at max.

    also what do you mean by "starter fish" do you mean that you put them in an uncycled tank or you put them in as your first fish after your tank cycled

    I don't think that really matters. They're in the tank. Why they're in the tank is inconsequential.
