Stocking a 55 gallon

I have a 55 gallon reef tank I already have 2 normal clownfish, 4 green chromis and a cleaner wrasse.

I was wanting 4 bangai cardinal fish

Any suggestions on more fish?

A goby shrimp combo would be a pretty good addition

I like the look of them but I don't like he fact that they hide away all the time except feeding

I'd be cautious as you are close to where you'd want to be in terms of fish. I have 6 in my 55 reef. As you're aiming at smaller fish, I think one fish would be doable and avoid the 4 cardinals.
How about a firefish, royal gramma, or a chalk bass to finish it off?

I'm using crushed coral it's like thick sand and yeh I just like a bit more life to the tank that's why I added a bigger skimmer and external filter.
