Need some help with stocking

I have had both freshwater and saltwater tanks in the past but none now since I had to move to the dorms and my tanks were too big but now that I'm getting an apartment I'd like to set up a reef tank. I'm still in planning so I still need to get most supplies and gear.

The tank will be a biocube 32 and as of now I plan on keeping the stock lighting and getting some more basic corals. I really like torchs, frogspawns, and hammers.

For fish I was thinking two options
1) pair of ocellaris clowns
Pygmy wrasse (Tanakas or pink streaked)
Goby/shrimp pair or jawfish
Tailspot blenny

2) pair of ocellaris clowns
Midas blenny
Royal Gramma
Goby/shrimp pair or jawfish

I also need some help choosing a cuc I really want a skunk cleaner and pom pom crab

Any help would be much appreciated!

Not a bad choice. I have an IM 40 gallon with a pair of skunks, coral beauty, and possum wrasse. Midas blennies are awesome. Royal gramma have great colors. I would go for a different goby like a yasha over a jawfish.

I would recommend shrimp with goby pair (mated goby pair with shrimp). Either Yasha or Randal goby pair with Randal shrimp.
