I am starting up a 180 gallon mixed reef tank (mostly SPS) tank with a 40 gallon sump. Dimensions of tank are 60L x 30h x24 deep and trying to figure out which fish to add. Here is a list of the fish that I am considering. I would love input as to which fish would not do well together and what order to introduce these fish. I def am not looking to overstock so would also appreciate feedback on how many makes sense. Again these are the fish that I like not thinking I am fitting all of them in this tank.

3 - Cardinal Fish
3 Lyretail Anthias (1 male / 2female)
3 Royal Gamma
3 azure Damselfish
Lawn Mower Blenny – DO I need for algae control
1 Flame Hawkfish
1 Mandarin
Six Line Wrasse – Aggressive toward other wrasse – does this fish need a lid?
1 Copperband Butterflyfish
Fox Face –
Quoyi Parrotfish – are they too hard to keep alive?

White Tail Tang
Powder Brown Tang
Powder Blue tang (how many can you put in one tank)
Convict Tang
Blonde Naso Tang
Sailfin Tang
Blue Throat Trigger (male & Female)
