Too many fish

i have no fish right now in my 46 gal tank. i have 36 lbs of live rock and am adding another 30 after liverocks.com gets the keys rock. but now i am thinking about stocking the tank. it has been up since the end of dec. now is this way too many fish or not.

1x flame angel
1x flam hawkfish
1x yellow watchman goby
2x Ocellaris clownfish
and maybe Maybe a mandarin goby in a long long time

it is going to be a reef tank i have a few corals in there now. i would not add them all at once i would do it over a year or so. the clown and the yellow watch man would be going in there soon in the next month or so and the flame angel would be last. what do you think do you think it is way to much fish for a 46 gal tank. i have a sump and thinking about adding a HOB refugium and the sump dose not have any bioball and is going to get some live rock soon to take the place of the balls.

Skip the mandarin, the tank is probably not large enough to support it. The rest....is probably pushing it, but it's close, IMO. If you stock it slowly adding the last fish (flame hawk) at about the 6 month point for the tank...it should be OK, IMO.

ok thanks i know it might be pushing it becasue it would need about 96 gal for the 1" per fish rule but i did not know if i could get away with about 2.5 " per gal. i will slowly add the fish.

ya they are all the fish that are know to eather look cool or are vary different them the normal fish. like the flam hawk fish runs around the tank watching other fish and things move will sitting on a rock. same with the yellow watchman. and the clowns i love how they swim. there whole body moves. i cant wate till payday to start getting some fish in this tank. pods and shrimp can only be fun to watch for so long. and corals well they really do not move vary much.
