Well that depends if u want shrimp in the reef. If you don't u can do it all in one because the lion fig and puffer r only referred to as reef safe with caution because they will eat shrimp not corals.

And the reef will require calcium an other trace elements that the fish don't need to survive.

IMO that's overstocked because of all the large fish. It also depends on what type of those fish you want and how many

If you wanted a reef I would not suggest the porcupine puffer i would suggest u go with a puffer that would not eat corals such as the Valentini puffer or the Toby puffer. And with the clownfish and lionfish it depends what clownfish I would go with percular or ocellaris. Most of the time I see maroon clowns kept with lionfish and they get along.

Three clownfish will kill each other
Two will pair and kill the other
And as I said earlier what type of each fish do you want? Yellow watchman goby? Neon blue goby? Etc. We can't help without knowing

Also what tangs did you want and I would not go with the damsels as they r a very aggresive fish and will most likely be eaten by the lionfish
