New Reefer
I'm wondering how many (if any) more fish you think I can add without overcrowding...

Have a 55G (Red Sea 250 G2) which currently has the following in it:
  1. Bangaii cardinalfish
  2. Tailspot blenny
  3. Royal gramma basslet
  4. Helfrichi firefish
  5. 6 line wrasse
  6. Flame hawk
  7. Flame angel

Is that maxed out or do you think I have room to add a couple more?

It depends upon how much live rock that you have in the tank, and also if the tank is reef tank or a fish only tank. A lot of live rock could limit the space in the tank, and if it's a reef tank, then you don't want that many fish, as the increase in load could cause a problem with water quality. Looking at what you have, it doesn't seem like a lot, though the 6 line wrasse could be a problem with the other fish, outside of the Flame Angel, that you have listed.
