Out of the fish i would do watchman first, then clowns and gramma at the same time. Both of them get aggressive so its best to introduce aggressive fish at the same time so one doesnt establish the territory before the other is introduced. The snails and shrimp can be added at any time, but if its a new tank wait til you start getting diatoms or algae to introduce the snails.

For future reference @James_O the use of the tag reef squad is usually for more advanced questions, and I would use it sparingly. The question you used it for was a kind of basic one and needn’t require the time of the experts
