Question How many gallons should the tank be?

Iím starting a new tank and Iíve decided what fish I want and how many, but Iím really unsure of how big the tank needs to be. What would be the smallest size tank I could put these fish in without overcrowding?

What I want to add:
2 Clownfish
6 Reef Chromis
3 Red Stop Light Cardinals
1 Royal Gramma Basslet
1 Tuxedo Damselfish
1 Yellow Prawn Goby
Small crabs & snails (amount to be determined by size of the tank)

Note: I also plan to put coral in the tank.

This would be a pretty sizable tank. Without the 6 Chromis, you could work in the area of the 4 ft long tanks with 55 being the smallest.

With the 6 Chromis, I would be looking at 100 gallons or more? I already have a 55-gallon tank. I was expecting to start another one that was larger than 55.

With any large grouping of schooling fish you will run into the need for these large tanks. You might be able to get away with a 90 gallon.
