I would do this order:
Bangaii
Jawfish
Foxface
Chromis
Goby
Clowns
Angel
Tangs

10 chromis might be pushing the parameters a little too much IMO.
Good luck with the tank, and I'm jealous. I want a big tank.

All lovely fish however if you're new to the Saltwater world i wouldn't add the Powder Brown for a few months. Tangs in general can get teritorial so i agree with adding them last.

Also watch out for the lemonpeel as they are notorious coral nippers. They like to nip on softies and especially zoa's.

thanks all for the replies. I currently have the lemonpeel in a 55 gallon tank (my daughters fish) i was just thinking of adding him to the big tank so i could only have 1 saltwater tank set up. I have 2 african cichlid tanks also set up. I do plan to QT ALL fish! my plan is QT 3-4 weeks then add to DT and then QT next fish until they are all in (will take a while but I want it done right). also I think im going to cut the blue green chromis down to maybe 5. If you think i should cut one of the tangs i can as its not more important to me to have certain fish as it is to have healthy happy fish.

thanks again
