Question 55G Stocking Options

Ok... Since my one Clown fish has died... I wanted to add another fish for the time being. I also was just thinking maybe I should redo my Livestock and what I should do with the clown fish that I have now. This is my Livestock now.

1. Yellow Eyed Kole Tang- I know should not be in a 55G!, But who follows the rules with Livestock keeping?
2. Green Spotted Mandarin
3. Orange Spotted Goby which is alway hiding.
4. Six Line Wrasse
5. Ocellaris Clown

How many more fish can I add tell I reached my limit? I was thinking about selling what I have but I might just end up keeping them and added a couple more...

You tank size is absolutely fine for that Kole.

You can probably get away with three or four more small-medium fish. I suggest:

1 Midas Blenny (my new favorite fish)
1 Talbot Damsel (I have had three, no problems with any of them)
1 Dwarf Angel (Cherub is what I have)

Are the Dwarf Angels (Cherub) Reef Safe? I was thinking about a Flame Angel but, I know those can get out of hand sometimes... The others sound good...

My cherub is reef safe, but there is always a small risk with any angel. I chose the Cherub because it stays small, 2-3 inches, while flame angels can reach 4-5.
