Question 150 gallon reef stocking plan?

I was look on live aquaria about corals and I like them. I was gonna go FOWLR but I like the corals!!Stocking list:

1 harlequin tusk(already have)
1 blue hippo tang
1 russel's lionfish
1 bluethroat trigger

And I have no clue what are good beginner corals.
Suggestions,comments,etc are greatly appreciated!!
I have T5 lights(2).
I was thinking green polyp and stuff!!
You can tell,I'm a noob at this stuff

Hmmm trigger

Im not sure but that trigger/coral combo sounds iffy to me, be sure to check that any fish you add are considered reef safe, Corals are not cheeep

I can already tell you that two bulbs will not even be close. First it needs to be a T5HO system. Then it will need to be a most likely 8 bulb system. Just make sure it`s a high output system. I too would check out those fish to see if they are reef safe. I can tell you some are not.

Thanks. I searched and all are sessile safe, but the trigger is not 100%. Also what's a T5HO? 8 bulb system?Not sure on the watts.
Thanks for the feedback.

Yeah, lighting for a 150G would definitely NOT be cheap.

You are better off going with FOWLR.Its somewhat cheaper and just as nice.You also have a better selection of fish.

Thanks for the advice.I'm going FOWLR as originally planned.
Is the russell's lionfish and bluechin trigger compatible?I read that the trigger won't harass it's tanlmates.
