Adding Green Chromis

I have a 40G breeder with protein skimmer live sand and live rock. I currently have two ocellaris clowns and a Barlett's Anthias. I want to add more activity. How many green Chromis can I add without overloading the tank?

Maybe 2-3. But that may be pushing it. I myself have a 40b. 2 clowns and Midas blenny. IMO there are other fish you could add instead of the Chromis. Maybe an angel or something colorful. But that's just me. Because they school, you need at least a trio and that would make your stock full.

Yeah I will probably just add a flameback or cherub as my last fish no Chromis. Thanks.
