Order to introduce fish

Hi!

The water is in, pumps are mixing, I'll add my live rock tomorrow, and I'm already thinking about my livestock. It's a 30g tank, with a 5g sump, 5g refugium, in a 14g tank in my cabinet, with 25 lbs of live rock, 20 of base rock, a skimmer, 800 gph in the tank. I'll come up with pictures soon.

Here what i'm thinking of, but I don't in which order i can introduce them.

1 x Clown Jester Goby
1 x Randall's Goby
2 x false perculas clownfishes
1 x Coral Beauty Angelfish

20 Trochus Snails, 15 Red Scarlet hermits

I'm not in a hurry, but like to know the best order to intrduce them

Thank you!

You can add the gobies and clowns first, then angelfish.

I agree with slither, I would introduce the mellow fish first and the angel last.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

So here's how I see it,
1st The court jester, then a month later, a few snails and crabs, wait a month then add the randall, wait a month crabs and snail, wait a month add the clowns together, wait a month snails and crabs, wait a month the coral beauty, then, you guess it, add few snails and crabs periodicaly?

You don't have to wait that long really. If your tank is cycled properly, it could handle the small bioload of the gobies and clown.

Well I'm on a budget, does it matter if I do it in a long period?

Oh no not at all. I was just saying that if you wanted to add them earlier, it would matter.
