Stocking list Any Thoughts?

I have 150 gal tank, 250lbs of LR right now,3-4 inch of sand on the bottom. It has been up and running for 6 months in the 150 and about 100lb of the rock started in a 45 gallon about 5 months b4 that and the fish i have right now are:

1 alantic blue tang
2 mated O. Clowns
3 gobys- yellow headed sleeper, orange dimond back, and blue and pink spotted
1 Heni Butterfly fish

What do u think about adding? Eventually

6 fire fish- 4 regular and 2 purple - i want to achive a school of them
1 high fin goby - i have a pistol shrimp who's shrimp goby died so i am looking for a new mate for him.
1 dwarf angle- either lemon peel or flame angle - you can't have both right?
1 spotted mandrian
1 either ---black cap basslet, Blue Flavivertex Pseudochromis or Neon Pseudochromis

Thought and opinions Please! Thanks

O also if i want to put an anemone in for the clowns would my tank be old enought for that and what kind of anemones are good for clowns? i was thinking a bubble tip.

Most people will tell you that a mature tank is needed for one. I`ve heard people say at least 1-2 years old. I waited two years for mine.

Mandarin also needs an established tank and will be competing for food (pods) with the sixline..

Have you thought about a group (maybe 5) of the blue/green chromis to school instead of the firefish?

With that much rock, your pod population should be well on its way to sustaining a mandarin soon. Seen many yet? Check the rocks at night, or maybe some of the sponge pre-filters.

No one has commented on if i can have both the angles or which of the 3 - basslet, neon dotty back, or the blue f. would be the best any thoughts ?
