Schooling fish

Currently I am running a 55gal reef tank with 2 black clowns and 2 Bangaii cardinals. I would like to add a small group of schooling fish but I am unsure which would work best. I was leaning towards the blue reef chromis because blue is my favorite color and I love the personalities of the little guys but live aquaria is currently out of stock. Anyone have any another suggestions? I am open to them all

Not a whole lot of schooling fish appropriate for a 55. I went through this same issue. Blue reef chromis are beautiful. I do know the blue green chromis are delicate and tend to die easily. Some people think of them as disposable. Grr.
Blue eyed cardinals are pretty neat, and don't look like the bangaii. I have 5 pajama cardinals and while not super active, they do school somewhat.
