I would say do your 27 gallon change and test your levels. That's the best way.

If I go home today and my numbers are good, I'm gonna go get 4-5 chromis to start

I saw Fiji purple anthias at my LFS the other day, I wish I could do a school of them but they're wayyy to expensive to do a school of lol I think they wanted like $40 per fish lol

I'm not sure I'd add more than three fish to start. Just to be safe. Just keep in mind that a lot of fish at the beginning may mean more large water changes until the system is mature. Make sure the fish are super healthy at the shop if you aren't going to quarantine.
