No Tangs and no more Angels. Tangs need a huge amount of room, and you already have the Coral Beauty.

Telling you options can be endless; it is much more easy when you list a bunch of fish/inverts you like so we can say which is best.

The most you can add to your tank now is probably a school of damsels or chromis, or possibly a clownfish of the larger size range like a tomato, pink skunk, or Clark's.
By the way, very nice fish you got there. Can we have an FTS?

You have plenty of choices still. Many of the basslets or pseudochromis would work fine. The arabian dottyback would be an excellent choice, especially if you can locate a captive-raised specimen.

A Six Line Wrasse is a great beginner fish and would mix well. A Yellow Clown Goby would add some color, and they are very fun fish to keep, especially given the price.

You could also consider a Hawkfish. Most of these are very hardy fish. The Flame or Longnose would work well and both stay small, which fits your tank size.

Another angel is out of the question. And i would not put a Tang in a 55 gallon tank. Stick with small fish that have adult sizes of less than 6 inches. I think the list above should satisfy your immediate needs.
