Ditch one of the dottybacks as they will fight each other, and the Catalina is a cold water species, but the rest are fine, but the carpenters has to be the first fish in or they have terrible survival rates. Your going to be looking at least a 40 breeder for tank size. And as far as your coral selections it spends on lighting, but you should wait a few months after the cycle to add sps to let your system mature and stabilize.

Also the two birdsnests are the same basically. You will need very high lighting for all those corals as well. I'm with bigred on the fish.
