90 gallon stocking help

I am going to be acquiring a 90g tank from craigs list and was wondering what you guys would do for stocking it as a mixed reef tank.

So far I plan on:

2 - Occ Clowns
1 - Engineer Goby
1 - Snowflake Blenny
1 - Mccoskers Flasher Wrasse
1 - Mandarin / Scooter (Havent made up my mind yet)

I'd love a tang so at the very least a bristletooth or kole yellow eye should be on that list. But would a yellow tang work in a tank this size? Live Aquaria has a recommended tank size at 100g but I'm not sure if a standard 90 would suffice for it since it's 4ft long.

So the triggers do well in the 90g? I would have imagined that they needed a larger tank. It would be great to get one as I really love triggers.

Mine are 100% fine. They are small right now, but the Blue Throats should all be ok in a 90 gallon.
