So I'm looking to start adding fish to my new reef aquarium. Just wanted to get opinions with the list below.

Sailfin tang 1
Black & White Heniochus Butterfly 1
Mandarin goby 1
Cinnamon clown 2
Bellus Angel Female 1
Blue green chromis school 4-6
Lawnmower blenny 1

I would not get a Mandarin for 6-12 months, you need a large pod population or they starve to death. It will take that long, and also make sure you have no other pod eating fish. Cinnamon clowns are very aggressive and territorial, many attack every time you have your hand in the tank. A school Chromis usually kill each other off until only 1 or 2 are left.

Ok thanks for the info. So instead of chromis, what else would be a great addition?

You could try a yellow tang. There easy to keep and fun to watch.

You have a better chance of the tangs getting along if A. you introduce them at the same time and B. get ones that do not share a body type or color

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

What about any smaller fish? Right now they are all kind of large.

What do you mean? Will the tangs bother them? Is that what youre getting at?

Not. Worried about that. More along looking for fish that won't get as big as the others.
