If I get a 56 gallon tank and add in a 20 gallon sump would that work?

I think it'd be doable, without knowing anything about those chromis of course.

I have more then that in each of my 40 gallons. It really depends. Everyone says you need these big tanks to hold more then 4 or 5 fish. No you don't. as long as you keep up with water changes, have good lighting and plenty of live rock. Most of the time you will be fine.

I would go with the 90... I started with a 30 and like everyone here after about 3-6 month I got a bigger tank and got a 90 go with what you think you will be happy with in the long run I love my 90... The tuff part is getting it filled with coral lots of room in there

Well I figured a smaller tank because in a few years I'm going to college so it is easier to break down a smaller tank.

If you're going to college in a few years it might be better to go with a smaller tank and reduce the stocking list. Say, probably a 20 - 30 gallon. Breaking down and moving a salt water tank is waaaay worse than a fresh water tank.

I completely agree with this if u plan on moving it I would pick the fish u really want and start smaller then when u graduate and are making tons of cash with your degree upgrade then
