Other than maybe a goby or blenny. Your maxed out on fish. The ones you have where probably bought small they will grow in decently sized fish.

You want corals do some research.

Check on filtration, lighting, and coral feeding and habits. No one can post what you want to know. It would be about 50 pages long

I would keep an eye on your fish the dominos can become very aggressive and territorial, puffers can become fin nippers. How long ago did you start your tank? Some people use damsels to cycle a tank but its considerd old practice and harsh to the fish. I would be really surprised if the puffers live through it. The best way to cycle is fishless get some peel and eat shrimp and throw them in the tank. If your fish do live it can cause long term damage from the ammonia and nitrites, this causes a poisoning to the fish.

Your dominos will get about 6" a piece, clowns 3-4 ", and your puffers can get 5". When they get full adult size you will be pretty much maxed out for fish. As far as corals depends on your lighting as to what you can get.

It sounds like you need some reading to do for your tank. Here is a good site to start you off with for beginners.
