Stocking plans

So in my 55gal I was planning (not all at once of course) to stock with a gold headed goby, royal gramma, 2 clowns, longfin bannerfish, and a small school of blue green chromis, and a CUC. How does this sound bio load wise? And how many chromis is feasible for my school in a tank this size?

As for filtration, I've got 14 lbs LR ( w/ 15 lbs dry rock), a HOB with a refugium and protein skimmer.

I've been researching the compatibility, and this group looks ok, but any experience/advice is greatly appreciated!

I was told for fish only, 0.5 lb per gallon was ok. If and when I go reef, I was going to get more rock.

I was thinking a little school of 3 chromi? Would this be too many?
