Fish Selection list

i have been researching fish for a long while since my tank can only contain a select few due to its size ( 30 gallons).
Here is my selection of Fish i like the most what combination would you choose?

1. Spotfin Lionfish
2. 2x Ocellaris Clownfish
3. Orange tail Fiji (puffer)
4. Lemonpeel Angel
5. Kaudern Cardinal
6. Red Madarin (Pterosynchiropus splendidus var.)

Another note what kind of snails should i get is there any specific snails you guys would recommend and when should i put them in the tank. ( i am at day 8 of my fishless cycle)

you really cant keep a lion in that small of a tank. Same with the puffer. The mandarin should not be added for at least a year else it will die and quickly. the lemonpeel should be alright in a 30 gallon but it might take a few shots at a slower moving cardinal. and the clowns will be fine.

I wouldn't put a mandarin in there at all unless you get one already eating prepaired foods or you are willing to provide live foods while you train it onto frozen.
