sounds alright. what is a "coral shrimp?" and i have heard the bumble bee snails are predatory. your going to want astreas, nassarius, nerite, ceriths .. all part of your clean up crew. i personally do not like crabs, esp hermit crabs as they rip snails from their shells, killing them only to find out they dont want to use that shell. all crabs are opportunistic, meaning they will eat what they can, when they can. if you go with a brittle starfish, avoid any green ones as these eat fish.
now, do you know what other equipment you will be using? i think its great your making a list of what fish to put into the tank, but to me this seems far off down the road. are you going to be using a sump? lighting? skimmer/filtration? flow? sand depth? how are you going to dose suppliments? RO/DI unit? what else will you be using?
