no nem. atleast not for a good year. they are very sensitive inverts. having clown fish + an anemone doesnt mean the clowns will host it. infact ive had clowns host corals, rocks, powerheads, anything THEY feel comfort in, not what you want them to feel comfort in. i believe your t5s are only 2 bulb? i would like to see a 4 bulb t5 at minimum for keeping the nem and thats prob. pushing it, so even better metal halides.
i dont think i would do a scooter blenny as they are similiar to mandarins and like a good pod population for a food source. you may be able to keep one, but further down the road in a more mature tank. i suggest skipping the damsel as well. they can be nasty fish ( but so can that 6line, so add him last )
emerald crabs, just like any crab are opportunistic eaters, meaning what they get their hands on, is what they'll pick at and eat. this can go for hermit CRABS too. i personally wont keep crabs anywhere other then my refuge on my tank. esp the hermits they love killing snails for their shell, and then decide they dont like that shell. as for a clean up crew you'd be better off having a mixture of different snails IMO ( besides predatory kinds like bumble bees ) like 10 nass, 10 cerith, 10 astrea... something to keep in mind.
