Is this FOWLR or Reef? My 2 cents (worth much less) below.

A 55 is probably too small for a Mandarin. They need a healthy, established pod population to really sustain them.
Pygmy Flame Angel / Coral Beauty- Either of these may nip corals and may not get along. I would choose one or the other and keep a close eye on them.

I doubt the snails will survive with the crabs in there. I've never had any success with the crabs simply eating the snails.

Personally, there's too many fish in that list for a 55G. I have that size and I would never stock that much, particularly the two angels.
