Nothing. No need to fill the tank till it's chockers.
I think the list you have now is good.

so this is the list
-Humu Humu trigger
-Niger trigger
-Emperor Angel
-Dogface Puffer
-Some sort of tang
-Snowflake eel
I think i will take my chances with 2 triggers just because they seem like they get along the best and wont have to many problems when they figure out who the boss is.

what order should i add these to my tank and how long should i wait in between. Also is there any fish that should be larger than another? I dont want one fish :p another just because they arent as agressive or whatever the case might be. This list sound ok right or is it too many fish. I just want to be sure that there isnt gonna be a big problem with space.

They all get rather large that's why I suggested only one Trigger (as well as the fighting reason).

It's a 5' actually.The niger gets a good 18".We have strongly advised that you should only go with 1 trigger.If you get 2 then it will be over crowded for the angel.I have a 150 gallon and I'm only goin with 4 fish,just for my emperor angel.The trigger(s) and puffer will make some sort of a chew toy out of the snowflake eel.If you have to go with the eel then add it first but be warned it might get bullied by the trigger(s)/puffer.As for the list:
1 snowflake eel
1 ??? tang
1 emperor angel
1 humu/niger trigger
1 dogface puffer

For the Tang your gonna need to buy one that is already big, and has attitude. I reccommend a Sailfin. They have attitude and they can look bigger than they are if they need to fend off one of the other fish.

ok so if the eel will get picked on than what other fish could i do maybe in replacement of it. So should the tang be first and angel be last?
