90 gallon stocklist

I'm picking up a 90 gallon tank on the 12th. What do you think of this stocklist?

Clownfish x 2
Bicolor Blenny x 1
Coral Beauty x 1
Black/Gold Chromis x 5
Bristletooth Tomini Tang x 1
Bicolor Foxface x 1
Cleaner Wrasse x 1
Twin Spot Goby x 2 (mated)

Should I drop the 5 chromis to 3? Does anything look off? Any concerns?

Looks good to me. Just add slowly and make sure your tank has completely cycled.

Looks fine to me, but the angel might nip at corals if you go reef.

I have the coral beauty in my 46 reef. She's nipped once or twice but didn't like my colt. She leaves everything else alone. So hopefully she keeps the same mindset. What about the foxface? Is it a nipper? Anybody have one? I was also looking at a mimic tang instead of the bristletooth, but was worried that my coral beauty would stress out or attack it since they mimic angelfish.

Anyone know how a dwarf angel will do with a mimic tang?

Yeah, I think I'll stick with the bristletooth I guess. Why get a tang that looks like an angel when I can have a tang that looks like a tang.

Excellent choice. U look at a yellow eyed tang?

I hadn't even thought about it, just cause it's the fish EVERYONE suggests to anyone without a 6 foot tank. But now that I actually looked at it, I can see why they suggest it. It really is a beautiful alternative to a larger tang and retains the nice physical qualities that the larger, more coveted yellow tang has.
