Yeah that's why I was only getting 1. Here's my final list:
Pair of clowns
Purple fire fish
Carpenter flasher wrasse
Royal gramma
Kole tang
Fox face
Yellow watchmen goby & pistol shrimp
CUC to be decided

In what order should they go in?

Also there is a thin layer of dust stuck to inside acrylic, is there a good way to get it off? I tried wiping with cloth but it stirred sand up again. I'm also worried about scratching acrylic. Any suggestions?

If your gonna do corals I'd say it needs about twice as much rock for coral placement and bring it a bit higher (atleast half way up your tank) for different light intensities.
