Best order to add fish?

My tank is cycled. I have a 65 gallon. I have 30# of live rock and am adding 40# more of "cured" tommorow. (yes my husband is forced to go to the LFS on fathers day) I am going to wait another 3-4 weeks before I add livestock. What is the best order to add them? This is what I want:
Bicolor blenny, a pair of clowns (tank raised black percula or false percula), yellow tang, royal gramma, six line wrasse(I want a clam eventually) maybe a figi damsel. The first coral I am planning on ordering is a rose BTA, but this is based on availability from LFS...as well as some shrooms.

To give the anemone the best chance (rose btas are expensive!!), you should wait until the tank has matured a year, also look for a TR clone.

1) bicolor blenny
2) royal gramma
3) pair of clowns
4) sixline wrasse
5) yellow tang
6) figi damsel

Agreed! Start with the least aggressive fish and work your way to the most aggressive. That way the less aggressive fish have a chance to get established and stake out territory.
