Those are all beautiful Angels, but I would not put a fish that gets a foot long in a 90g.

An Achilles tang would be an awful choice, not only do they get large and need at least a 6 foot tank but they are one of the harder fish to keep. Not to mention they are not cheap. I like kole tangs as a smaller tang.

Achilles can get 8-10" and have a very poor success rate In captivity. They are also my favorite fish and require more on the range of an 8 foot tank with a lot of current due to the surge zone habitat they come from off of Hawaiian coasts. 6 feet would be a bare minimum. Not a beginner fish at all. The best tang for 4 feet tanks are the kole or tomini tang.
