I do eventually plan on adding a sump or fuge but i have a feeling that my wallet will need to recuperate from setting the main s up haha I'm going to look for good deals on Craigslist so I might get lucky an find a deal that has one. If I don't then I'll be buying new, but on the bright side, I can get a good deal on sand,rock, ect. So the cansiter will only be a short term solution

Already have a ro/di filter, test kits, and Home Depot lights.

Also I think I'm going with the yellow eye, they have came highly recommend so gar

As far as inverts go, you are pretty unrestricted. They will probably help more than they will add to the bioload.

Yep, I've been looking at larger starfish such as chocolate chip and such

They get to be a decent size, and I'm not sure I would go as small as 90g. We had one in a 300g years ago and it really used all of the space to cruise around. 90 could work, you'd just want to keep an eye on it when it gets full size. Ours was a model citizen, but it had lots of room. No way in a 55g, IMO.

Hmm, yeah, I know they get pretty large an I knew that a 55g was pretty questionable. I love it's oddball look, but don't wanna cramp it.

I wanted a harlequin tusk as well for my 90g but I'm thinking it is too small. But maybe in the bigger tank i am building.

As for the white tailed bristletooth tang, I have been on liveaquarias wait list for over 2 years for one and they have never come into stock. Not one lfs I know, and trust me, thats alot of them, has even heard of them let alone able to get one. I settled for a blue eyed tang for the 90g instead. Beautiful fish but he is a nasty fish. he torments the aggressive wrasses I have in there sometimes. Based on that I wouldnt mix him with a regular community fish tank. He does ok cause of the aggressive fish I have already in there but not sure how he would respond to less aggressive fish.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

If you think he's aggressive, I will loan you my clown tang. That fish takes no prisoners. Not easy to raise, but beautiful and aggressive.
