I would get rid of the flame angel just to be safe because if he does decide to nip corals it would honeslty be impossible to get him out. Cleaner wrasse dont do well in home aquariums so i wouldnt get them, just my opinion. The dragonets would be ok if they are added at least a year down the road so you have tons of pods. The schooling bannerfish should be in a trio becase they are SCHOOLING bannerfish only get 1 blenny they are agressive with their own species. Not sure about the gobies. Also, i dont know if you are overstocked or understocked because i have never even thought about this large of a tank, someone who owns a similar size should chime in

Okay. While I wait for someone to chime in. Do these sound like good corrals?

Sea Fan Coral-(finger, whip, blueberry)
Mushroom Coral-(fluorescent, striped, bullseye, hairy, ricordea)
Soft Coral-(cauliflower, carnation tree, ridge, devils hand, chili, finger leather, Christmas tree)

Any too difficult and should be ruled out? I'm gonna start with just super simple corral but would like to eventually get most of these.

Everything but the angels are fine. Not too sure if they would nip. I wouldn't do any angels but japaneese swallow tails or wanatabe in a reef personally.

Usually mandarins should only be one to a tank unless they are a pair. They are extremely territorial.

The general rule of thumb with gobies and blennies is none of the same shape or color. Cleaner wrasse is a rent a fish.

If you want to do reef start with this. Add slowly. As time goes on you will discover other fish and see if they are good for your tank. You can try bluezoo aquatics online. They list some that liveaquaria doesn't.
