45 gallon stocking advice

I have a 45 gallon with a 15 gallon sump reef tank with a decent amount of coral, now i want to start adding some reef safe fish. I want to know how many i can keep and if the ones i listed seem ok.

This is the order i would like to add them.

Golden Head Sleeper Goby

Skunk Cleaner Shrimp

Small school of blue green chromis ( 3-4)

Algae Blenny

Royal Gramma

1 pair of tank raised false perc clowns

Six Line Wrasse

Cherub Angel

I'm guessing just looking at the list it is too many, so which would you suggest leaving out, or maybe some suggestions for other fish.

I would suggest leaving the angel out if this is going to be a reef tank.

I seem to be more conservative around here when it comes to stocking levels, but I think it's safe to say that's too many fish. What to leave out really depends on what type of fish you want to keep. If you want to keep the pair of clowns, I'd just add the 3x chromis and the goby and call it quits. Like Mike mentioned, I wouldn'd attempt the Angel with coral in there.

I have a 46g, with 1x clown, 1x Bangaii Cardinal, 3x Chromis, and a little Yellow Clown Goby. For me, I can't imagine adding any more fish.
