Stocking order to avoid tensions in the tank

My tank has done cycling. Ammonia 0, Nitrite 0 but Nitrate 20 will do 50% waterchange today.

Could you guys help me with the stocking order so that not to create stress and tensions in my 132g 6 footer.

Fishes and inverts on my list are shown below with my stocking order not sure if this is right or wrong:

1st - 20 hermits and 20 snails of cleaning crews to start cleaning (provided nitrate zero out after first 50% water change?)

2nd - 5 Peppermint Shrimps to clear up some aiptasia (provided nitrate zero out after first 50% water change?)

3rd - 8 Blue Chromis
4th - 1 Ocellaris Clown
5th - 1 Redline cleaner skunk (Do I still need to watch the nitrate before adding this? As the nitrate should be zero out by now?)

6th - 1 Regal Blue Tang
7th - 1 Yellow Tang
8th - 1 Naso Tang

As I posted also in the other thread you are good to go at 5ppm where you said you are at. Your Stocking list looks OK but I would as Angel said add all 3 tangs together.
