Livestock suggestions

Hi, I am buying my 180g tank soon. i am going to make it FOWLR. I am in need of some livestock suggestions. Here is my list right now. I know it is too much. I am trying to take a few off, which is why I am asking here.

-Powder Blue Tang
-Sohal Tang
-Blonde Naso Tang
-Regal Angel
-Mexican Dragon Moray
-Harlequin Tusk
-Queen Angel
-Dogface Puffer

These are the fish on my list. Now, I am wondering which are not compatible, and which are not good choices for fish overall. Thanks!

How much live rock do you plan on having? I wouldn't necessarily add tangs to a new tank, not good. They require good water conditions, and the other fish on your list are messy carnivores, not the best for tank mates. I can easily see the moray nipping at those inviting tang fins. They have different nutritional needs too. I'd drop the sohal all together, or keep it alone of all the tangs, they can be pretty aggressive. Don't know about the tusk or the angel either... no experience with those.
Only thing more dangerous than a 2nd lieutenant saying "In my experience" is a warrant officer saying "Hey guys, check this out!"
