New guy in New York

Hi Everyone, i am new to this hobby and website. growing up i have always been facinated by saltwater aquariums and now i have one.
a little bit about my tank:
180 gallons (72" x 24" x 24")
wet/dry filter
2 aquaclear 70
uv sterilizer
approximately 165 lbs. of live Fiji rock
2.5-3" live sand bed
the tank was first filled in February of this year, cycled with the live rock and sand for a few weeks then i put some damsels in there to complete the cycling.
the current livestock is:
6 damsels
2 pajama cardinals
1 niger trigger
2 yellow tangs
2 blue hippo (regal) tangs
1 blond naso tang
1 snowflake eel

still left on my wish list are:
marron gold band clownfish
Medium emperor angel
porcupine puffer (or dogface not sure yet)
lionfish
cowfish
huma huma (picasso) trigger
Clown Trigger

so, what do you all think? hoping to hear some suggestions/advice from folks who have had more experience at this than me. I am working very closely with a maintenance company / LFS that has a lot of experience and excellent references.
