I think you're fine with regular water changes although you're pretty max'd out. I have almost the same load in my 55 gal with a 5 gal fuge.

I think you should be ok.

Suggestion: I would slowly add another 30# LR.

Clark's might get a bit big...

I'd lose the hawkfish (which species is this? not familiar with a 'dawrf hawkfish')

A definite NO on the horseshoe crab. They get up to 2' long.

Too much, also will there be corals in this tank? If so the angel will have to go.

You can find it by Googling "Dwarf Hawkfish."
