stocking list

i've decided that i want to keep my tank on the reef end of things, and keep the stocking list relatively low for a low bioload. would this list be a little out of that category, or do you think it could be considered light for a 55 gallon reef?

5 green chromis (2 of which are large)
2 skunk clowns
serpent star
2 cleaner shrimp

the field of unpopular music is wide open

that is low to moderate, you should do just fine with that.

That`s a good selection. Just remember that if you want a reef tank you`ll have to stay away from the dwarf angels as they are prone to nip at corals

Don't forget the rest of the cleaning crew. Snails, hermits.

I'd also consider only 3 chromis and something yellow. Citron/yellow goby, or a yellow watchman (with a pistol shrimp). Or a canary blenny. I'd go for a bit more color.

Let us know what you decide.
