8 compatible different fish for reef tank

have 90 gallon salt tank. would like to put 8 fish in it, but no schooling fish. I am going to have a few corals and would like a yellow stripe maroon clown and a green spotted mandarin dragonette( i know this one will come later). I would like to have a feather duster and a pistol shrimp. need compatibility help because all websites and books seem to have some conflicting info. I just don't want a lot of the same fish. please help, all suggestions are welcomed

dwarf angels are hit and miss with your corals. Probobly ok, but may nip at your corals. Up to you to take the chance. But would work fine fish wise.

can be aggressive, and keep in mind, it will be very hard to add a Mandarin to tank, it will be a while and if anything is aggressive it could very well be picked on.

Cinamon or skunk are two different ones that are pretty cool. Or be really cool and get the black percs. They are nemo, but jet black. Cool looking fish.

I like the yellow eyed Kole tang. That would be good for that size tank. Also a goby would be nice. Maybe a black sailfin blenny. I have pics in my gallery if you want to see what they look like.
