Fish Load and Cleanign crew suggestions

I have questiong reguarding the amount of fish and invertebrats that I am able to put in a tank?

I curently have a 29gal setup, LR only and it is cycling when its done cycling I want to prurchase a "cleaning crew" and my concern is if they will count again the amount of fish that I want to put in. Which will be 2 clown, 1 yellowtail blue damse, and a Yellow Tang if possible?

What are some good cleaning crew suggestion for my tank?

Here is what I want:

2 Ocellaris Clownfish
1 Yellow Tail Damsel
1 Firefish Goby
2 Peppermint Shrimp
2 Scarlet Hermit Crabs
2 Zebra Reef Hermit
3 Margarita Snails
1 Sand sifting Star
3 Trochus Snail
2 Cerith Snails

Please let me know if this too much....

IMO, Yellow Tangs should not be put in anything under 55 gallons, many people insisting on 75+, even 90+.

What about a Lemon Peel Angelfish? I don't own one, but there supposed to be easy to care for and as you can see, they are bright yellow with blue rings around their eyes.

a Lemonpeel will work if you are not doing corals. Yellow wrasse or Yellow Watchman Goby would also work in a 29g.

A royal gramma would be a wonderful replacement for the tang too. Look in my gallery to see mine. Other than, that looks good except ......a 29 is too small for a sand sifter, may starve would omit it. Could add a few more snails and definately 30+ lbs of LR.
Have fun!!
