55 gallon tank stocking?

We have a 55 gallon tank that we have a clown, tribal blenny, 6 line wrasse, and scooter blenny. We want to have a lot of small fish in there that way we can have more in there. Any ideas of what else we can put in there? We know we want some fire fish and a flame angel. Anything else yall think of?

I would say you are about at your limit one rule of thumb I have seen is 1" of fish per five gallons. It really depends on your setup, how good of a filtration system you have, how much bioload you can handle, etc...
