The only fish I'm unsure on is the hawk. The others won't touch any of your clean up crew.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Here's the link for the hawkfish

Longnose Hawkfish

It only really says it's reef safe and semi aggressive. I would say that it will not eat clean up crew based on that information.

BUT anyone who has one feel free to chime in, every fish is different.

I do know the long nosed hawk fish will sometimes eat bristle worms and I consider them one of the most important parts of my CUC. The are know carpet surfers as well.

Personally I wouldn't put a dotty back with a firefish. The firefish isn't a very aggressive eater and may starve.
