The only fish that doesnt belong as far as I can see is the catalina goby. It's a coldwater fish. :-(

Good choice. If in doubt, don't do it.

List looks solid.

I've had cleaner and peppermint shrimp. Both are nice, peppermint will take care of aptasia for you.

Id go ahead with the gramma. Only aggresive to fish that look like it. You should add it last. The YWG and blenny might no do so well because there both bottom dwellers and the goby might attack it.

Actually add the clowns last. They have been known to pair up and kill everything in the tank if added first...:l
