Tank is Cycled any advise on stocking

Hello I have a 5 week cycled tank:
Ammonia: 0
Nitrite:0
Nitrate:20
Alk: 180
PH:8.0
SG: 1.021

Here is a list of fish that if I could I would like to pick and choose from:

Tibicen Angelfish
Bicolor Angelfish
Lemonpeel Angelfish
Golden Semilarvatus Butterflyfish
Lemon Butterflyfish
Ocellaris Clownfish
Yellow Hawaiian Tang
Whitecheek Tang
Burgundy Sea Star

Keep in mind I don't want them all but of the list how many of each can I get away with? I currently have 2 Blue/yellow tail Damsels (that I am about to trade) one clown, 4 Turbo Snails and 3 Hermit Crabs

Also, with this set up any suggestions on multi test kit (easy to read)

55gal FOWLR Bak-Pak w/built in Skimmer, RENA FILSTAR XP3 CANISTER FILTER Coralife 2X65 Coralife Aqualight (130 Watt) 1X15 Coralife Bluelight 30 LBS of LR

First, you probably already know this..but a reminder. You dont want more than one angel in a tank. Sometimes you can get a dwarfs to coexsist, but its not the norm.

Butterfly's are considered "advanced" usually because they can be very delicate.

Tangs in a 55 are frowned upon. Even one in a 55 isnt good. They are sprinters and need 75-100gallons (when full grown) to be happy.

If it were me, I would put the clowns, one angel, and maybe a few anthias. If you havent looked at them, I would suggest it. Very colorful, perfect for the smaller tank, and relatively inexpensive. They are also very active and will school. However, I would caution that you research what kind your tank and skills can handle. A barlets anthias is very easily kept, but a purple queen requires live food several times a day.


JMO,


Squishy
