100 gallon fowlr with inverts stocking ideas

Is this an okay stocking list for a 100 gallon saltwater tank or is it too much of a bioload? I intend to add 1-4 fish every month or so and the angels will come after a year or so:
2 ocellaris clownfish
4-5 orange or purple firefish (all the same color, just can't decide which one)
3 acares reef chromis (grow to be about 2 inches)
1 exquisite fairy wrasse
1 flame angel
1 multicolor angel
1 goldflake angel

Ok, it's just that I'm trying to figure out what size tanks to start with and I want to figure out soon so I can start making a list of supplies to get to build and create a saltwater tank. And once I have figured out what size tank to get, I can finish up my research on saltwater equipment.

I would say that's a decent bio load. Not too much. What inverts will you be keeping?

I'll probably be keeping a lot of cleaner type shtimp and a lot of snails too, but no crabs, including hermit crabs(I heard that they will eat snails). That's about it and maybe an anemone after a year or so.

Just make sure there is food for whatever you put in there. In other words, don't add 30 snails if you don't have a bit of algae. All you will have in the end is 30 snail shells.
Yes, most hermits kill snails out of instinct. I once saw a hermit kill 3 snails and change his shell 3 times in 1 day.
That said you could get the tiny red leg reef hermits. They don't get very big. Not big enough to hijack a normal sized astrea snail anyway.

Also, how many small fish like firefish do you think I could add? What about medium sized fish, like dwarf angels and wrasse?

Well, if you want a fish that eats pods, I would skip the fairy wrasses. They will compete with anything else for the pod population. If you don't care about that, a pair (male and female) of flame wrasses would be nice. You like those expensive fish.....check them out.
I would keep 1 dwarf angel since they may be aggressive towards each other.
Firefish, you could add quite a few of. Half dozen if you really liked them.
All of this is contingent on an excellent filtration system of course.
Get a giant skimmer.
