I have learned that you need fish that will do some job for you. Here are my two cents.
Cleaner wrasse - will keep your fish healthy and will cleaning any parasites off your fish,
Copperband Butterfly - will take care any aiptasia in your tank,
Fox face tang - will eat bubble algae,
Any sand sifting goby if you planing to have sand.

They won’t eat corals...just your clean up crew.

By the way, how bug is your tank? Reefer 270 LX gives me no results.
It’s a Waterbox 270LX not really sure it’s 6 feet by 30 inches wide and 26.3 tall I’m guessing like 200 gallons

(Length x width x height in inches) / 231 = volume in gallons (not including glass thickness, overflow boxes, and head space). So (72 x 30 x 26.3) / 231 = 245.9
