help stocking up a 55 gallon!

Hey there,

I'm starting out as a FOWLR tank and eventually adding some simple coral.. it's my first tank and it's been running for a couple weeks. Got ~70# of used live rock and purchased a cleanup crew that's been in there for 4-5 days. Currently got some green hair algae growth that I'm dealing with, but my ammonia, nitrite, and nitrate are at 0. Here are my current stocking plans (in order of introduction):

1 royal gramma
2 firefish
2 clownfish
1 sixline wrasse
1 dwarf angel (either flame or coral beauty)

1) Does that seem reasonable? I was recommended to put the gramma third, but since it's my first tank I wanted the first purchase to be a little cheaper in case something went wrong.

2) Also, would it be too early to get my first fish this weekend to put into my QT for a couple weeks?
