125 gallon fish list please help

ok i got my 125 gallon tank and im starting to figure out what i wanna keep in the tank. i know that i want an imperator angel and a achilles tang.
then some of the fish im leaning towards are a humu trigger and a bicolor angel. im curious what other fish would go good with these ones? and clownfish,lions, or just what ever im open to sugestions. i dont really want and fish that are gonna be doctile though i want a pretty active tank. id like to keep some crabs,snails, and shrimp so i don't really want anything that will eat to many of those kind of animals. also what you ya think about the brittle star fish? are they a good one to get as far as a janitor for cleaning up, are they hard to maintain and are they cool?
any help or sugestions are apreciated.if you see any problems with this list i have started by all means let me know,because i have not keep any of these fish.

trigger, puffer, and lions will all eat shrimp, crabs, and any fish they can wrap their lips around. may want to re-think those fish if you would like inverts. brittle stars are cool, and easy to care for. as for cleaning well they do eat detrius and are scavangers but as a cleaning crew probably not as effective as crabs, shrimp, and snails. try checking out compatablility charts on fish before you add anything together. then just go from there!
good luck,

I got a 125 gallon tank also. I have harmony in my tank as of now. No telling what the future will hold. So far this is all I plan to put into the tank. You can check my sig for the list...but it is a pretty peaceful group of fishes. All of the fish can be hand fed and thats the way they want it. Worst than cats sometimes. If I put food in there they will let it float around until they figure out I am not going to Hand feed them then they will go after the food.....pretty funny...they just sit there and look at me like "Hey ain't cha gonna feed us?"
