question on fish additions

It's been about 2 months since my tank cycled (its been up since june/july, but i had sum problems with no cycling, then ich, but its all good now), I have 2 clowns, 1 blue damsel, 2 blue devils, and 3 snails in the 72 gallon tank. I would like to add a flame angel, maybe a watchman goby, and one bigger fish ,maybe a butterfly or tang. Which one of these would be best to get, would it be better to get certain ones first?
Also, i was thinking of getting a hermit crab or 2 and maybe a starfish, how will these affect my fish(will they get along)

If you go for a flame angel make sure its eating in the LFS. The goby should be fine also. If you do look at the butterfly's make sure you really research the specific species of butterfly your interested in. Some are classified as very difficult or very specific feeders and others are classified of a more moderate difficulty.

Any fish you add might find it getting ganged up by the three damsels. Be sure to watch the damsels and their agression. The flame angel is going to be the shyest of the fish you get probably.

As far as starfish what type are you looking at? Some have a bad wrap as being fish eaters when they get larger.

i've had lots of experience in the past with damsels being bullies. if your going to keep the damsels a coral beauty got along very nicely with them, a nd you won't drop a load of money on this guy.
