80 gallon reef tank stocking ideas

What's up y'all. I'm new to this place and would love ideas on what to stock my soon to be 80 gallon reef tank with.
I currently have a 32 biocube which I will be replacing with the bigger tank and upgrading all the residents to their new home.
Tank dimensions are : 48L x 24W x 16H
Will have about a 15 gallon sump

Current stock:
1 Lawnmower Blenny
1 Midas Blenny
2 Ocellaris clownfish
1 Panther grouper (will be rehomed when he outgrows the tank, if you have a big enough tank and are interested in him, shoot me a message)
9 or so different snails.

I'm looking for things that are reef friendly obviously and nothing that would endanger the health of my other guys. An example being that tangs are ich magnets.

Why even buy the Grouper..... you can get a flame hawk, most smaller wrasses or some cardinal fish

I got him when I very first started out in saltwater, so I was a little buy happy. Only after I got him is when I did my research and find out he grows to be a giant. I live flame hawks but I read that they like eating cleaner shrimp so I'm a little scared on that happening.
