How about these fish?

I am just starting to set up my tank. I hope to start cycling next weekend. Cross your fingers. Here's my wish list. Please tell me if it sounds compatible/adequate. The tank is 65 gal with 100 lbs of lr and 3 inches of sand. Also a 150 gal wet/dry with protein skimmer.

1 O. Clowns
1 Flame Hawk
1 Flame Angel
1 Yellow Watchman Goby
1 Lawnmower Blenny
1 Jawfish
1 Firefish

Is this to much? I would appreciate ya'lls input. Can you also help with with what kind and quantities of cleaner crew I need?

hiya....
get the blenny at a later date when your tank is more established...
maybe drop the jawfish..but get a pair of clowns instead of 1(add them together ...cause is you want 1 at a later date u will have a mare lol)
other than that i would say u good )
cleanup for a 65....hhmmm so many to choose from lol
2 cleaner shrimps(oh yayy these guys r ace )
IMO u need hermits and snails...(get away with 1 per 2gallon)
sounds like a lot..but really it aint !
i use red hermits..and prefer turbo snails )

and...lol..that list will change in about 5 weeks guaranteed )

Thanks Cardinal. I think I'm going to drop the flame hawk. I know he'll eat the shrimp, but now I'm hearing he'll eat small gobies and crabs. Why would you drop the jawfish?

I am not sure about the hawk but I think that is doable. None of those fish get very large. If I can keep 2 O. clowns in a 10 gallon I think you can keep all that in a 65 gallon.
