You may be adding fish a little too fast . Add one fish when your levels even out again. And for the angels, you may be able to pull off another dwarf, but they may kill eachother. The bigger the tank the better. . Add the pair of clowns at the same time. They should be fine, but could possibly fight with the damsels as they are related. GL!!!!!

Crap, I forget about that adding too fast thing. Ok will back off for a while. Just excited I guess. I've been waiting since Thanksgiving with fishless cycling and all.
I would like to thank Carey for getting me in that BRS group buy. I got 25 pounds of pukani that time around. I also have that rodi filter on the way.

I've been using that unit and she's really solid,..also you always know where to get extra parts and filters from.

Nice fish! I would also recommend holding off for a little while.

So fish have been in 36 hours at least and my readings are as follows:

Temp 76 F
PH 8.0
Ammonia 0
Nitrite 0
Nitrate .25
Phosphate .25
Calcium 340
Alk 9dkH
SG 1.023

How do they look?

Are you keeping coral? If so calcium is a little low, phosphates are a little high, I shoot for 400 and 0 respectively.

Also if you are keeping coral what's your MAG at?

No corals now. Perhaps in a year. I want to get a hang of saltwater keeping first. Im new to it and would hate to lose any thing because of me.
On that note I have found and removed the first fatality.
