Saltwater start up/Stocking Help

I'm getting a 50 gallon tank this weekend and have decided i'm going to try a salt water/reef tank. I haven't done much research into stocking since i'm not in any rush. Below are a list of fish that I like, would it be possible to stock all of these in my tank? I do have a Green spotted puffer already he isn't aggressive towards other fish but if anything changes I don't have a problem moving him into another tank. Also I'm going to have a 10 gallon sump would you recommend having hang on back filters as well? I'm used to doing water changes and over filtering my tank because of the puffer already.

1 Green Spotted Puffer
Purple Dottyback
Gold Assessor Basslet
blue/green reef Chromis (would like 3 of these)
Green Mandarin
Pajama Cardinal.
Red Sea Star

Skip the star and the mandarin and the list seems fine. Those two have awful survival rates in captivity. The rest seems fine though
