Ya that ^^ either way you get the point haha. I would just add the 2 clowns for now and let your BB catch up. Then add more stuff in a couple weeks.

I highly doubt the lion fish would be a good idea but I have no experience with them. Is it going to be a Reef or just a Fish only?

I think the tank is a little small for a lion. On the other hand, I love the wrasse family. How about a Carpenters or a McCoskers?

A dwarf is fine in a 55 but anything that will fit in its mouth is potentially its next meal. Also if your lfs does not have a certain fish in stock a lot of times they will order it in for you if you leave them your name and number. If not you can always order it yourself which I actually reccomend since you eliminate the middleman and one less stop for the fish before ending up in your tank.

Now I live in Ohio and there is a huge SW store in cleavland i heard of, but never have been there, but the place I usually go to has a very wide selection, I can call them and see. I know they have a dwarf Lion that I saw there. I might pick that up in a couple weeks.
