I would rethink the blue tang, they need a huge tank. Also the dottyback could be a lil on the aggressive side, better to add the most aggressive fish last.

Second that, blue tangs get a foot long and a 55 is no place for them. A kole yellow eye is a maybe as they get 6-7 inches. I have a 55 and I am going to get a kole but some would advise against it. Also keep in mind that tangs are very ich prone so have a quarantine ready, personally I would skip quarantine to reduce stress but if you get an outbreak treat it fast. I actually added a kole last weekend and after 5 minutes it was swimming around happily and grazing. By morning it was toast-ich, my clowns even got it but they recovered on their own without treatment.
