55 gallon stocking

Our 55 gallon tank is ready for fish!! Here are our stocking plans::

1 cherub angel
1 purple firefish
Pair of ocellaris clowns
1 type of goby
1 strawberry dottyback
CUC of usual hermits and snails
A few skunk shrimp
Would love to have a serpent starfish

We plan on starting with the clowns. I was wondering if a falco's hawkfish would be ok or if adding it would cause the tank to be overstocked?

I have 7 fish in my 55 reef. Just go slow with adding fish and you should be ok. Just make sure that parameters are stable before going over 5 and go from there. I'd never go over 7.
