Reef safe fish

I have a 90 gallon tank that crashed about a month ago and lost all the fish however all of the coral is doing great. In a couple more weeks I am going to start to add fish again and have a couple questions just to make sure everything is compatible.
As far as cleanup crew goes I have an electric blue crab, Halloween crab, 1 emerald crab and 5 snails. Thinking about getting 2-3 more emerald crabs and a couple fire shrimp. Thoughts? What about peppermint shrimp to battle aptasia? Are they aggressive? I was thinking of getting 3-4?
As far as fish goes, I would love to have a harlequin tusk, yellow tang, 2 purple firefish, and maybe a 6 line wrasse just to keep any worm population down. Is the 6 line going to be too aggressive? Will the tusk bother any of the other fish or coral? Any specific order I should put the fish in at?
Thanks and I look forward to hearing your thoughts.

I have a six line and he is not that aggressive. The tangs and fire fish should be OK. Never had the Harlequin tusk so I cant answer. Try some gobies. The pink spotted gobie is a good choice.

What do you care about worms? They aren't going to hurt anything and are part of your "clean up crew" if there is such a thing. I would think the Tusk would eat the shrimp at the very least.
