Decided to make my 180 a fish only and looking for some help on my stocking list. this is what I decided on.

Harlequin tuskfish
Blue throat triggerfish
Dog face puffer
Royal blue tang
Flame angelfish
Foxface rabbitfish

What theses fish be okay for my tank and what order should I introduce them to the tank.
180 gallon
120 sump
200 lbs live rock

Looks like a good line up, I don't see any obvious issues with order of introduction either.

What is a royal blue tang? Acanthurus leucosternon?

If so I would add that last - otherwise the order doesn't matter too much, most of those fish are pretty decent community fish.

Everything looks ok except for the blue tang. They require a 8' 240

I agree looks good, except for the Hippo. If you get a small one you might be ok for a little while, but no long-term. I would take him off and maybe add to of the smaller tangs, like a Mimic or a Yellow tang along with a Kole or Tomini.
