Dwarf angel tank size?

Hi, everyone! So recently I recieved a 55-gallon aquarium from someone who was moving out. This is what I've decided to be my first saltwater aquarium. Seeing all of the saltwater beginner fish that different sites, forums, and videos reccomend, I'm really looking at either a Coral Beauty or Flame Angelfish to be one of my choices. I was just wondering, will the tank be good enough to house one with other fish? The planned tankmates are a pair of Ocellaris Clownfish, a Neon Goby, a Royal Gramma Basslet, a Banggai Cardinalfish, a Cleaner Shrimp, 4 Nassarius Snails, and 2 Pom Pom Crabs. I do not plan on having corals in my tank for a while, just live rock. Will they be able to get along with all of these guys in that size of an aquarium? If so, which one would you reccomend more in terms of hardiness?

All input and suggestions are appreciated!

- Diego

A 55 would be fine for a flame angel or a coral beauty. Sadly, they are the only two of the dwarf angels that can fit in such small systems to my knowledge. Things look pretty good though, keep us posted on progression.

Just a side note, Banggai Cardinals are schoolers and a single one will probably not fair well. Consider at least 3 or more. If they are large enough that you can sex them, a single M/F pair will work.
