4-5 square back anthias
6 blue/green reef chromis
1 one spot foxface
2 spotbreast angelfish (1 male 1 female)
3-4 baggai cardinals or pajama cardinals
3-4 stripped cardinals
2 maroon clowns.

* indicates that I already have the fish and they are living in a reef tank with cleaner shrimp, peppermint shrimp, snails, crabs, anemones, starfish, corals and other things.
Like nunu has said that is a lot of fish. I would probably only put 2-3 tags max, that crowded of a tank is asking for a tang on tang bloodbath I think.

8 cardinals is a lot. If I were going to cut down the stock that would be my second choice after cutting a tang or three from the list.

Not a bad lineup but I would consider a couple tangs, the foxface and angels as the centerpieces and the rest as just there for some variety. I like the schools of anthias and chromis but those in additional to the schools of cardinals is too much, plus the blenny and wrasse

Last, I don't even consider this optional. Do not put more than one pair of clowns in that tank.

Also this stock list should take about a year to complete.
