Help with finishing up stocking my 90g

Alright guys here's what I have right now in my 90g.
1- false perc clown
3-green reef chromis
1-flame angel
1- purple tang

What else can I put in? I was thinking a lion fish? Maybe another tang?

If your looking at a lionfish need to make sure none of your fish are small enough to fit in his mouth what about foxface, copperband butterfly, Maine betta?

I think I would forego the lionfish. Maybe a nice butterfly. I recently got a Hawaiian Fourspot butterfly and love him. There are so many to chose from and I think it would make a nice addition to round out your collection of fish.

First off if you are getting any other tangs. Put them in first. And put that purple tang in very last on account for its aggression but as for tangs. You can't get the yellows, or for that matter any tang that has the same body style. But you could get a powder blue or brown or a blue hippo.

Put anything else you wanted in that tank THEN out that purple in. Change some rock formation so he will not have any territory to claim.

Adding another tang could add a lot of stress to your tank. IMO there are a lot of beautiful fish you could add in a tank that size. trio of anthias, school of cardinals, a butterfly, a foxface, fairy wrasse, flasher wrasse, etc. Lots of possibilities.

If you go foxface go, magnificent foxface. Lol

As far as another tang, it's risky no matter how u do it because purples are pretty mean. If you are dead set on it go with a smaller one.
