Help with Stocking

Hey everyone, working out my livestock plan and the good ole calculator put my 112 gallons at 22" of fish (pretty stingy eh? lol) So I am considering first and foremost (3) True Percula TR and (4) Green Reef Chromis. thats about 21" of fish right there. Can I add these all at once? My projected add date is March 9th (parameters pending of course), the system has been running since Dec 30th. Secondly when the time comes, can the 22" rule be exceeded later, if so what are some good guidelines to do this safely? I would really like another 6 - 10 inches of fish after those clowns and chromies.

Thanks!

not a prob and forget that dumb rule to a point ya know !!! you can add more than those 7 fish with out a doubt !! if ya looking for them to school imo ya need at least 7 or more chromis's !! at 4 they really dont school that well the more the better the schooling will be !! aslo i found that ya want to add all at one time i did 4 and then added four a month later to just have the bully kill off 3 !! now i have 5 !! just my thoughts !!
