First Tank!!!

Ok, I was going to go with an agressive tank as my first tank. However, my tank is only 50-55 gallons. So, I don't think I have the room to support big agressive fish. I've decided to go reef style instead. I need some suggestions on some good fish and inverts to start out with. Any ideas?

Wrasses are fun when they dart in and out of the LR. Also, yellow-tail damsels are great for starter fish. If you get tired of them after a year, just sell them back to your LFS and get another fish. Also, a Royal Gramma is fun for a starter fish.
