55 Gal (1 year old) advice

Hey guys, Im getting kind of bored with my tank. (KINDA) not really. Guess I am looking for inspiration. So far I have..

55gal tank
110lbs live rock roughly.
2 PH's
1 Phosban Reactor
1 BakPak skimmer
1 Rio HOB skimmer (Not in use at teh moment)
Coralife PC 2 actinic 2 regular

Live
20 Snails / mix
20 hermit crabs
2 O Clowns
1 yellow tail damsel
1 purble/yellow dotty back royal
2 small rocks of Polyp Coral?
3 Green Striped Mushroom Corals?

Here is a picture of it. I was thinking of keeping only small fish. What are some other hardy fish that will add some livelyness to my tank?



Everyone is getting along well and the tank is doing great it seams. Let me know what you all think?

Yes! A Foxface. This fish is awesome! I am a little worried tho. My tank is pretty clean from algea and this morning he didnt want anything to do with the frozen i tried to feed em. He went straight for the algea on the side of the tank. (There isnt going to be alot of that for him to eat on). what should I stock up on to feed this guy?

Its kinda funny - I have this red kelp looking stuff on one rock and my clowns seamed to have hosted it. Well, this morning I noticed they also EAT on it. He came over and flexed his fins a few times but the clowns were like Pfftttt, pull up a chair buddy. So 2 clowns and the FoxFace were going to town eating on that kelp looking stuff...

A purple Psuedochromis is Very hardy, and extremely active. I think you'd enjoy one in your tank. They are a beautiful lavender color with neon looking blue rings around their eyes

Nice fish, keep an eye on your coral. He may or may not turn into a coral muncher if he gets hungry enough.
