a list of fish, i need some help with

well i have no plan in diving right into my salt tank , and im doing things step by step, so i wrote down a list of fish that i like and im wondering if any one could tell me if there reef safe and if they will fit in a 70 gal. i know that they all cant go in there but im wondering what will and what too stay away from, also can you let me know if they like groups and how many. heres the fish i like so far,
green/blue cromis
percula clowns
powder blue surgeon
flame angle
royal gramma
mandarin fish
fire fish
yellow tangs

Well they are all ecceptable, but the yellow tang, powder blue, and flame angel may nip at polyps if not fed properly.

Royal Grammas can be kept in groups

Chromis need groups to flourish.

Percula keep either single or in pairs.

The other fish in your list because fighting is likely to occur.

hi e are you planning a fish only or a reef? imo if it is to be a fish only the flame, yellow tang, gramma, and clowns would make good tank mates. the powder blue i would shy away from have heard they are difficult to keep. fire fish are great but they have to be in a very peaceful tank that would leave out pretty much the rest of your list...i have been looking into the beautiful mandarin fish and will probably eliminate it because of it's dietary needs...good luck and happy shopping

how about a coral beauty?
how would 12 or so green blue cromis and 2 false percula clowns and a coral beauty and a couple royal grammas, would that be over crowded in a 70gal? are those fish also fine with cleaner shrimp and sifter star fish?
