55g stock ideas

I am planing on starting a 55g folar tank. My kids are busy picking out the fish they would like. So far I have:
1 yellow tang
1 clown
1 six line wrasse(my favorite!)
1 royal gramma
1 goby or other sand sifter

They had wanted another large fish such as a trigger, dwarf angle or butterfly. Any reccomendations. Also what inverts can I add.
Thanks :D

Skip the tang because it needs more room than a 55. The others with something like a coal beauty would be nice.

Skip the trigger and butterfly in this tank.

You could get a pair of clowns and a flame angel instead of the tang.
