Stocking my 70 gallon

Hi everyone,
Well I am setting up my 70 gallon this week and just got my quarantine set up. A friend of mine is giving me a sponge out of his sump to seed it and to seed add to seeding my 70 gallon. So would it be ok to go ahead and get my 1st fish to put in quarantine so when my tank is fully cycled I can transfer him in and get my 2nd? If so here is my stocking list. I'm not sure if it's too many or if I will still have room, being this is my 1st SW setup. Also how long before I can add some mushrooms and some softies? Also I know nothing about CUC . Whet and how many should I get? When do they needed to be added?

1 (maybe pair) clownfish
1 kole tang
1 flame angel
1carpenter flasher wrasse
1 yellow watchmen goby & 1 pistol shrimp
I think I may be forgetting something, but of this list who should be added 1st?

Lindsay

They're all peaceful except for the angel can be semi-aggressive. So I would say add the angel last of this group. The kole tang can be kinda shy and timid, so I would add that one first if it was me. Then the wrasse, goby/shrimp, clowns , then angel.

Firefish are very shy, would put him in first or second. He'll make a little burrow to hide in, probably under a rock.

So would he stay there? Is the purple fire fish one of those fish you would never see? If so, I might reconsider. Any other recommendations, or fish I should take a look at? Thanks.

Once he gets comfortable, he'll come out. It'll take maybe a week or less. He'll sleep in the burrow and dart there when he's startled. They're very cute fish.

I would say you could get a couple more small fish, but see how your water parameters are first with these.
