Welcome to R2R and the salty side of the hobby! Any thoughts yet on what you'd like to stock in your tank?
Great question. And the answer is of course YES. Like most people I think the variety and beauty of certain species is what brought me to pursuing this hobby in the first place.

Here is the list of things I'd really like to have, as well as a wish list of those things I would consider secondarily. Bear in mind I've only done moderate research on compatibility so feel free to weigh in on which of the species on the second list below aren't compatible with those on the first list (Triggers?). Also free free to make recommendations on other species I should look at based on these.

First Priority:
- Blue Hippo Tang
- Yellow Tang
- Clownfish
- Radiata Lionfish
- Green Mandarin
- Purple Tang
- Foxface
- Six Line Wrasse

- Fire Shrimp
- Maxima Clam
- Blue Linckia Star
- Gold Mystery Snail

- Bubble Tip Anemone
- Tubbs Zoanthid
- Toadstool
- Green Star Polyp
- Duncan

Wish List:
- Watanabei Angelfish
- Clown Triggerfish
- Niger Triggerfish
- Harlequin Tusk
- Cardinalfish

- Emerald Crab
- Babylon Snail

- Condy Anemone
- Xenia
- Torch Coral
- Hammer
- Frogspawn

Nice fish list. Be sure to have supplemental feeding plan for mandarin, as its a shame so many starve in aquariums. This is a good post, I've found blue pex for down tube, but on the hunt to replace with black so it 'fades' more into background:
