Should i take free fish?

So a woman want to give me her clown fish and her squirrelfish. I'm not sure if they will go with my tank or not. I have a foxface and a porcupine puffer. Some snails ,a sand sifter starfish and a conch. So what do you think? Anyone have a idea?
189g tank
Will be adding other predators like an eel, tang,

I would if they were good fish. Nothin wrong with free unless it costs you in the long run. And unless they are tiny fish you shouldn't have a problem with that list of predators.

I think the squirrel fish is larger. I'm just wondering if he will mess with my
Conch and sand sifter star

This can be a world of problems if you're not careful.make sure you quarantine those fish in a separate tank for atleast 3-4 weeks before adding them to your main tank
