20g FOWLR build

Got a spare 20 long laying around and figured why not turn it into a FOWLR? First i wanted to get the stocking strait. I was thinking-
OC.clownfish pair, a Harlequin bass, and a small blenny not sure which one but would this be ok? For invertabrates a skunk cleaner shrimp, some hermit crabs, a porcelain crab or two, and 1-2 emerald crabs.

Tell me your thoughts on the stock,
Thanks

Now onto topic, why get reef safe fish for a fowlr. If I was doing a small fowlr I would get an angler, they are awesome

Would an angler eat the other stock?

No the opposite, just snails and hermits with the angler. Painted are cool and the red ones are awesome. They are fairly pricey though

Ah gotcha yeah anglers will eat anything they can fit in their mouths. Well your other stock sounded fine to me if that's what you want.
