Good news!

Hey, with all the death that happened in my tank I am now getting to a more stable place. On the 9th I added a bicolor angel and it seems to be doing really well. Exploring the tank not hiding all the time, eating when I feed and picking at the rocks and algae strips I put in between feedings. That being said I am going to wait til closer to the end of the month but I'm thinking about getting a school of blue green cromis and was wondering how many I should keep in a school. Also if I need to be worried about my green brittle star eating them (I plan on keeping the star fed well with clams and silversides once a week or so). After adding them my stock list will be:

Foxface lo x1
Bicolor angel x1
Blue green chromis x?
Chocolate chip starfish x1
Green brittle starfish x1

The chromis are fun! But you will probably lose some.. Just how it goes with them.. Example, I bought 6 and 1 died within a few days.. Had the remaining 5 for a couple months and I wake up one morning and two of them died. I have has the last 3 now for almost a year. That being said I would recommend no less than getting 6 minimum.. Also I could be wrong, but I think they all need to be introduced at the same time?
