Finally going to start stocking aquarium, HELP!

I have a 75g aquarium that has cycled. I really need help stocking. This is my fish stock and clean up crew. Please tell me if this is too much and suggest other fish that will work. I will be housing coral eventually, but for now I want to stock fish.

Lemonpeel angelfish
2 black and white false percula clownfish
Yellow tang/blue hippo tang/kole tang/
4 blue/green chromis
4 spotted cardinalfish


CUC
8 bumblebee snails
6 dwarf red tip hermit crabs
6 dwarf yellow tip hermit crabs
6 dwarf zebra hermit crabs
3 scarlet red hermit crabs
2 emerald crabs
Peppermint shrimp
2 Scarlet skunk cleaner shrimp
Dwarf colored feather duster

And here are pics of my tank

The tank is too small for a yellow tang and much too small for a hippo tank (both need 6 foot or longer aquariums and more swimming space). The Kole tang should work, I believe.

Would every other fish work then? Is it too crowded?

I know the clownfish and the chromis'll work fine, but I'm not sure about the cardinals, maybe someone else will chime in.

The cardinals should get along fine with the Clowns and chromis. I dont think you are overstocked.

Having you thought of a sandsifting star (may not be reef rafe) or nassarius snails do a fine job

I'm trying to stay away from stars because they may not be reef safe and I'm probably going to get 1-2 of those snails. Also, might get the diamond goby, looks nice

Gobys are very entertaining they have a perpetual frown which amuses me. But the nassarius snails should worrk well.
