Water test today

I have been following my water cycle and the test results show my tank is cycled.
I have tested the last four days and it shows all tests at normal.
I have had cured live rock in my tank since the start at about three weeks now.
Any suggestions on what to put in tank first and how far time wise in between adding each fish?
My kids are interested in the Blue Tang and Clowns of course.
I am interested in the:
Powder Blue Surgeon
Achilles Surgeon
Purple Tang
Yellow Tang
Bicolor Angel
Raccoon Butterfly
Six line Wrass
Hog fish

My tank is a 120 but only 4ft long.

a tang would be ok in that tank but they would be better suited in a 6' long tank though

Thanks for the feedback.
Everything I have read says minimum tank is 75 for a tang, but I'm open to suggestions as to what to put in the 120. Any yellow fish that could take the place of a yellow tang or purple to take the place of the purple tang?

yellow tangs require less then a blue tang they only grow to 8" where as the blue regal grows to 12"

a powder bround tang grows to 8" also but it doesn't need the same space as a yellow.
Aquarium Fish: Tropical Freshwater Fish and Saltwater Fish for Home Aquariums is a great place to find information about the specific types of fish you'd like to have as well as corals and inverts
