Lightbulb New saltwater tank help?

So I've been doing some research on a new tank I would like to set up with more of an indo-pacific reef theme. I was just wondering what tank size I should acquire for the setup. Here's the complete list of species I plan on housing in the tank...
Fish: Inverts:
1.Ocellaris Clown x2 1.Banded Coral Shrimp
2.Flame Angel x1 2.Scarlet skunk cleaner shrimp
3.Fire Fish x1 3.Electric Blue Hermit Crab
4.Blue/Green Reef Chromis x3 4.Blue Tuxedo Urchin
5.Yellowfin Flasher Wrasse x1 5.Marble Seastar
6.Orange Lined Cardinal Fish x1 6.Porcelain Anemone Crab
7. Neon Velvet Damsel x1 7.Banded Trochus Snail

I would also appreciate maybe some recommendations on how many of each invert. I should have and maybe how much live rock I should put in the aquarium. Anyway any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks;
Insanejellyfish

At least a 75. I wouldn't do the marbled sea star. That's a fromia sp. star and very hard to keep alive. The rest looks fine

Totally agree, get the largest tank you can afford to set up and manage, larger volume is more stable. I would advise after fully cycling, add livestock gradually rather than have a huge swing in bioload
