Fish list for new aquarium

Hello everyone

I know the list is too large but some help would be appriciated in which to keep or change etc.. btw the tank is 125g 5ft x 2ft

Clown fish (ocellaris) x2
Spotted Fox Face

Flame Angel
Banggai Cardinal x 2 -
Green Chromis x 3
Blue Chromis x 3
Yellow Tang
Black & White Butterfly
Copperband Butterfly

Royal Gramma Basslet
Goby
Jawfish
Atlantic Blue Tang or Kole Tang - Could the Kole tang house in my tank?

i've tried to keep the large fish numbers down and the highlighted fish are the ones i really like.
what do you think?

The order I'd add these fish are as follows (I'm listing all of them and the order still applies whether you add it or not).

Goby
Jawfish
Banggai Cardinal x 2 -
Copperband Butterfly
Royal Gramma Basslet
Clown fish (ocellaris) x2
Green Chromis x 3
Blue Chromis x 3
Spotted Fox Face
Black & White Butterfly
Yellow Tang
Flame Angel
Atlantic Blue Tang or Kole Tang - Could the Kole tang house in my tank? <----Yes you tank will have enough space, however a chance of aggression with the Yellow tang

Best of luck

Ps. This is just my thought, however others may see differently.

I'd skip the Atlantic blue unless you don't want to keep any other tangs. They get quite large and are very aggressive.

Thanks for the reply, do you think this amount of fish will be ok? i'm going to change the Atlanic to the Kole tang. Obviously the fish being added will take some time, i'm not looking at rushing it. i've spent a year preparing and researching, all i got to do now is set up my RO/DI unit and start making water

You might not be able to get away with that many chromis. They tend to kill each other off. You can go ahead and add them (after qt, since they are often sickly), but be prepared for their numbers to dwindle a bit.

With the foxface, butterfly, and yellow tang, I probably wouldn't add another tang.

Add the clowns, cardinals, chromis first. Make sure the copperband is well established before adding the foxface and either tang.

Atlantic Tang "could" get too big with your tank size. Of course this is my opinion and others will have their own. A Yellow Eye / Kole would be a perfect fit though. Again, my opinion and I would probably only have 1 tang in a tank that size but that is just me.
