Definitely no tang, way too big. I would say a 4' tank is bare minimum for a tang, but our service guys have definitely noticed that there tends to be a lot less HLLE when tangs are well fed in 6' tanks.
I wouldn't do any pseudochromis.
No turbo snails, they will knock over your corals.
I would avoid hermits, at least for the most part. You may not see it happen, but they are more than happen to get new homes whether there is currently a snail in it or not.
I would rely more on smaller snails. Definitely get some large nassarius to keep the sand clean. Margaritas, astrea, etc. are good too.
I wouldn't wait that long to add fish, no reason to. Fish are a natural part of the reef system. Their waste is food for many corals.
I wouldn't do an anemone. They are very sensitive. They also move around and can sting and kill any coral. Stick with corals, many LPS are very similar to anemones, even hosted by clowns.
