New sw fish

To insure your beneficial bacteria have a chance to increase ammonia conversion. To many fish at once can cause an ammonia spike and kill everything.

Ditto to what they said. It's all about patience with a marine tank. Haste definitely makes waste.

it's exciting adding fish go slow 1 every 2weeks or so , just don't overstock and be sure all are compatible with one another and make sure they are compatible with tank size.

Depends on what species of Clownfish and wrasse you are talking about. Some grow larger than others in both cases.

just so you are aware the emperor angel can get as big as 1ft 3in and require a tank around 220 us gallons , a 200 liter tank = aprox 53 us gallons . this would be my only concern , unless you are prepared to upgrade sometime in the near future once he starts growing . beautiful fish though .

As said above, people forget that fish grow. There may be a lot of space now, but as the fish grow they will take up a lot more room.
