Chromis are the least aggressive of the damsel family. They won't really bother anything in the tank. As far as inverts, I don't have any yet.

How many Chromis could I fit with everything else that I plan on getting?

I would say a school of 3-5 Chromis would work out well. They are really cool to watch.

So, a pair of Percula Clowns, a Bicolor Blenny, a Flame Angel, Royal Gramma, and 4 Chromis? Would my 38 sustain all of them?

Just threw in the damsels. With the list you gave earlier, you could omit them. Mike has a nice idea with the school of chromis. Add a few hermits, snails, a cleaner shrimp, maybe a fire shrimp and a few of the fish you mentioned earlier and you have a wonderful tank!

After looking at the list, that may be pushing it a bit. You may be maxed out with what you have already.

This is why I want a larger tank. lol

I thought I would be happy with a 90G. There are so many species to choose from. 8O

Argh. This is a very tough decision, as I love the way all the fish I named look, but I've never seen the behavior of any Chromis. I would be happy with just the fish I named:

Flame Angel
2 P. Clowns
Royal Gramma
Bicolor Blenny
Then some of the Inverts you named.

Would that right there max it out? Or would maybe a just a pair of Chromis? Or are Chromis not even worth it if you can't have more than 2?

That looks like a pretty good list you got there. I would just stick with that. It will be a nice colorful tank.
Just add one fish a month so you don't overload the bio.
