Fish List- Need input

I have a 57 gallon reef tank 36x18x21 and would like the MR community's input on the following fish list. I will be getting a trio of McCosker's flasher wrasses and am considering the following tank mates though not necessarily all:

Orange lined cardinal fish (most likely a group of 3 or more)
Swissguard basslet
Flame hawkfish
Clownfish

Any thoughts on the above or any suggestions that I may not have come across that would work with the flasher wrasses?

Thanks.

That is a pretty good list. The orange lines get bigger than you'd think, and you might want to consider the blue-eyed cardinals instead. I'd def. add the Flashers 1st and let them settle in.

Realized that there'd be a lot of striped looking fish. Haha. Any suggestions for tank mates for the wrasses?
