Cangrats now the fun begins. Certain Clowns will get along with firefish as some of them are aggressive and the firefish are peaceful and require a lot of hiding spots in the tank, it's also best to get them in pairs. Most Tangs require 100+ gallon tanks however there are a few that would do well in your tank rated for 80 gallons and below and even then you should stick to just one of those. The sixline wrasse is a semi aggressive fish and will pick on peaceful species if not fed well and as with the firefish needs plenty of rock work to hide.
Is this tank FO, FOWLR, reef or a combination of the two? Because 32 watts of lighting isn't nearly enough.

Your clown fish don't need an anemone and you don't have enough light. Full spectrum light is the wavelength of of the bulbs and should be written on the end of the bulb. It's the type of light not the strength of it and as stated above by infernosST you need lots more for an anemone.
