Only thing you may want to consider throwing in your FX loop is your delay.

Personally, I love the way my modulation (chorus, flange, phase, etc) and my delays sound in my loop but it is all up to personal taste. Experiment a bit with it and see which you like more.

Just be aware some pedals are not designed to take the greater levels present from the Line Out. I once had to post on a thread where someone recommended a Line6 effect be placed in the effects loop when the manufacturer specifically state not to do this as it would damage the circuitry.
If you are unsure, most manufacturer's website have the specs for their pedals and all you need to do is look at the input & output volatge ranges accepted by the pedals. BOSS for one designs their pedasl for guitar level inputs and if you look at their guide they published they never place their pedals in the effects loop.
Some effects loops (parallel) will allow you to send a smaller signal to the pedals to avoid damaging them and also re-amplify the pedal output. Series effects loops do not support this generally speaking.
Moving on.....

None of this is an issue with the HT-5. It has a -10db loop level selection that is ideal for pedals.
