Fish lists and best overall feeding routine

Hi everyone much appreciated if you can give me a helping hand here. So I have a 630 litre system(140 gallons) and have decided on a fish list but would like your help on the routine. I wanted to double check they were all good with each other.
The first 3 on the list I already have and it goes in the order I think the fish should be added:
Maroon clown(tiny)
Foxface
Bicolour blenny
Coral beauty
Longnose hawkfish
McCoskers flasher wrasse
Scott's fairy wrasse
Koi fairy wrasse
Copperband butterflyfish
Sailfin tang

Please help with the order as well as the diet. So as far as diet goes I will feed marine cuisine in the morning with dried seaweed on a clip. More marine cuisine in the afternoon and I'm the evening I will feed a flake food like ocean food 55 with some algae pellets. Is that ok? I've got the hang of feeding enough to keep the fish fat but not letting any settle on the bottom. Ow nearly forgot marine cuisine is a mix of enriched brine shrimp, Mysis shrimp, krill and some seaweed.

Thank you for taking your time to read this.

List looks good. I would maybe not get the copperband though. They can be very very difficult to get to eat. :-(

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

That sounds like a lot of feeding, IMO.

I would wait in the CB, but everything else looks okay. May be feeding a bit much, just keep the volume of the feedings down.

I like your selection. A few thoughts on the CB. You can add the CB last after the tank matures for awhile. I know there are some on here who think you should never have a CB (due to difficulty) but I've kept one successfully for about a year and a half. They are very personable fish that are always moving and picking at the live rock so well stocked cured live rock is a must imo. Also key that you are able to get them to eat other foods. Mine really likes mysis shrimp. Good luck.

Thanks. Since the very first time I walked into a fish shop when I was 11 I saw a CB and said to my mum can I have that one. The fish shop owner told me i should start with goldfish. Ever since then I've worked my way up to a CB. Goldfish, then cold water community, tropical, planted tropical, FOWLR, reef tank. So I was always going to try and get one of these fish my total favourite fish by looks. The other fish where stepping stones to the CB. Fell in love with them all in the end.

a good 99% of the copper banded butterflies that are collected end up starving to death in people's tanks. You need a very large tank with a lot of live rock to keep one of these, more times than not. I've imported quite a few of them and none of the people I sold to still have them. The three wrasses will be competing with it for any live food available.
I also don't feel you need to feed multiple times a day. I fear you will run into algae problems at least, in a short time. Once a day is more than enough.

I agree with X on the CB. Yes, they are very nice looking fish, but they also have awful survival rates. I've tried two over the years. Even the one that was eating only made it about two months .

Ok I might have to reconsider a prize fish of the tank.
