Am i stocked

Hey everyone, after some opinions from you wise folk, I have a 90gallon 3x2x2 tank,current stock is
tomini tang
anthias fathead
chromis
engineer goby
starry blenny
Yellow wrasse and 1 clownfish, am I stocked already?
Every time I go to the Lfs I get the
'more flowers(corals)? Why can't we get a fish' talk from the other half. Is there anything else I could put in the tank to make her happy?
Any opinions will be great! And Ideas on fish if you like, I'm open to suggestions. Thank you.

Who happy? I would say you can add a little more but the tomini may get too big for a 3' tank.

My gf lol. Any suggestions on fish? I'm after something I'm gonna see, nothing that hides alot. And I think I asked on here before on the tomini and got the green light to get it, if he gets too big I can always find him a suitable home.

I'm just letting you know that 3' is kids short for a tomini. Seems like you know what your talking about though. And it's your tank. But, for active fish, I would recommend a dwarf angel of some sort. You can't get triggers, angels, tangs, or larger wrasse so a dwarf angel would be your best bet.

How bout a Kole Tang? I'm getting one as my next addition once my 75 is up and running... They're active and great looking..

This tank is 3' long first of all, and second of all both tangs (kole and tomini, he already has a tomini) are in the same genus, ctenochaetus, so the existing tang will most likely harass the new one to death. Not a good idea.

I can see the issue of the second tang, but Koles have a 70 gal minimum. They don't require a 6' tank like a lot of other tangs.

I thought dwarf angels were all Reef safe with caution? I really don't want to risk any of my corals I'll go check them out online tho, if I see anything I like ill post on here to get a 2nd opinion.

So do the tomini tangs but I can see where he's coming from, my tang loves to give off a burst of speed now and again, I predict an upgrade for me soon lol

And if you do a dwarf angel, a coral beauty would probably be the best option as they aren't as nippy as others like lemon peels or flames.
