Help me pick me next fish.

The 90g has been up for a few months now.Testing at zero regularly.

Right now I only have two fish.One clown and one yellow tang and I'm looking for suggestions as to what to add next.

There are also some snails and crabs.

About 80lbs of live rock and no coral yet,but I will be adding some so keep that in mind.

Also I want to add a flame angel last.

What do you think?If this were yous what would you add?Anything on your ''must have" list that maybe I haven't considered?

Gobies (with our without pistol shrimp). Blennies(bi-color, canary, or midas). 3 blue/green chromis. Wrasse.

Those get my votes for next.

The last fish should be a pseudochromis or dottyback!.....Super cool little fish but they have to be last.....

Flame angel?.... be careful with coral!

Flame angels are or will be coral munchers IME. I say another tang. A Kole tang. My yellow tang and Kole tang are best of buds.

I really like the manderin gobie,but I have no copapod population at all.
Do all gobies need them to live?Anyway to populate a tank with em?

Also keep the ideas coming..I'm going to look at all the suggestions later tonight and order a fish tomorrow.

I 'll post what I have decided of course.

Good luck in the "Pick Fatz's New Fish" contest lol.

I think you might be thinking about mandarins.
Here are the "shrimp gobies", from liveaquaria.com:

gobies, cardinals, chromies, perchance a dfft style tang (kole is an excellent recommendation, gorgeous fish and fairly well tempered).
Maybe some (1 or 2) jawfish? (I like them poking out from underneath the rocks..so cool to watch em building their dens)

I've successfully added a couple firefish and scissortail gobies to my 90 reef with no probs whatsoever (was afraid they'd get squimish about similiar body types) and they make a good presentation as 'stationary' fish along side the couple cardinals.. looks good with a couple clowns and a tang..

gl on your choices
