Starting a 55 Gallon FOWLR

Last Summer I really got into aquarium keeping. I have a 20 gallon freshwater now. This summer I'm moving in with some friends and would love to set up a 55 gallon FOWLR tank. I plan on stocking my tank sorta like this:

1 Coral Beauty Angelfish
2 Ocellaris Clowns
2 Banggai Cardinalfish
1 6 stripe Wrasse
1 Scissor-tail Dartfish
1 Royal Gramma

Any advice or suggestions? Can i keep cleaner fish as well? As I stated above, I did some research but this is still unfamiliar territory.

The stock list seems fine to me. What do you mean by cleaner fish? Like ones that eat algae or clean fish?

I mean like Shrimp or crabs, stuff like that. I also want to try to breed my clowns, will any of those fish interfere with that?

You'll have to set up separate tanks to raise the eggs in. They'll definitely be eaten in the main tank. Breeding clowns is a long and tedious process.
