well, i think the coral beauty is going to be the most aggressive, so i would add it last. i don't think the others matter much.
as for the clowns, i wouldn't worry about them being in the tank for very long first. i would add all of the fish slowly though....one at a time (except for the clowns) and some space in between for the bacteria colony to catch up. one a week? i don't see why that would be a problem.

lol, sorry I responded before you edited. So I will introduce the clowns on Monday and allow a week to pass, I will probably introduce the hawkfish first. Then the blenny and finally the coral beauty at one week intervals. One week between each and I should be good to go?

Of course all of this is assuming the water checks out at the end of each week.

lol. i never kept track of the time between additions. not in small systems. since most of my livestock purchases have been wholesale, i didn't have the ability to add slowly. you have to buy fish/inverts/corals by the box. i just always ordered the smallest specimens they had.
that's what i'll be doing in my next system. most likely adding a box of juvenile fish all at once.
