Just saw this thread. Interesting. Your planned stick list looks good. Can I suggest a skunk cleaner shrimp? They have so much personality and its fun watch the other fish swim up for a cleaning or watching he shrimp stalk up behind a fish and jump on it and start cleaning. Lol. And for a peaceful fish, there the chalk bass, has some pretty blue in it. Firefish are very cute. A goby or a blenny.
BTW, someone had mentioned sexy shrimp, but I would advise against them cuz cardinals commonly will eat the sexy shrimp. They wouldnt stand a chance and It'll be an expensive lunch for the fish.
Good luck with he cycling!!

I think the list is fine, shouldn't be any major problems as long as they are added in proper order.
In my reef, my cleaner cleans my starry blenny regularly. The blenny even opens mid mouth wide so the shrimp can clean inside his mouth too. Pretty funny to watch!! Here's a couple pics of my shrimp cleaning the anthias from head to tail.
