Stock list

Ok here is the fish list I and my wife and daughter came up with and wanted to see how or if it would work so let's know what you think about it.
2 Ocellaris Clownfish
2 Banggai Cardinalfish ( I think that's the name)
White with black stripes
1 Flame Angel
1 Regal Angel
1 Copperband Butterflyfish
1 Moorish Idol
1 Mandarin Goby
If this wont work what are the best suggestions you have from this list ?

I agree with Onefish. But, Copperband can be had, just make sure that it is eating at the LFS, if you do not presonally see it eat, do not buy it. Next, No Regal Angel either, your tank is to small for that fish.

yea, unfortunately they are an attractive fish but almost impossible to keep alive, at the very least not talking long term.

you will have plenty grazing rock for a mandarin but add it after your tanks a good few months old. the copperband is tricky but can be done, i find the yellow long nose butterfly fish a better option. is this planned to be a reef?

What is wrong with the Idol? Hard to keep alive or bad for the other stuff? Is there anything similar to it that would work?

Yes just a few things like frogspawn and kinda moving things like that.
