Fish compatibility

Hi all! Iíve finally got my 75 gallon tank set up. I have a list of the fish Iím going to purchase, but I wanted to get a second opinion before I went ahead and bought them.

I currently have:

Two paired ocellaris clowns.
A Banggai cardinal
Two peppermint shrimp
A bunch of dwarf ceriths and Nassarius snails

I am definitely getting these, which is what Iíd like my other choices to be based on:

1) A purple fire fish
2&3)Two yellow clown gobies

What Iíd like to get, but is debatable and up to you guys and what you think is best:

4)A yellow watchman goby w/ paired pistol shrimp
5)A flame angel, but Iím not sure because they donít usually ship well
6)A lawnmower blenny/ any blenny really
Possibly something else but I think that might be overboard.

Let me know what you guys think!

I'd get one of the last 3 and skip the clown gobies. They are small and you wouldn't see them in a tank that size. I had two in my 55 for a short period of time and never saw them to know if they were dead or alive.

At max I kept 5 fish in my 55 gallon reef. It varies with size of the fish and how much they have to eat. I'd stick with my suggestion.

If you have corals just be aware that the flame angel could nip at them and make sure you have a top if you get the firefish as they are notorious jumpers. Other than that it seems fine.
