My Things With Stings Tank

As my house has finally gone through and I have finally got some water in my fish tank I am looking to starting up my new 90 gallon. It will have a 30 gallon sump and 4 54w lights. I would like my stock to be a Foxface rabbit fish and two dwarf lion fish (thinking dwarf zebra and either antenna or russels). I would also like to add some coral (obv all in time not going to be a quick job) and I would like some mushrooms toadstools and a torch coral. what do people think? am i maxed or overloading my bioload too?

Not necessarily. It would depend on your feeding regimen and your nutrient export. Get an oversized skimmer.

Would 2 skimmers do the same job? I already have a bubble magus c7 but could always look into a second if needed. What about the corals ok under 4 54w t5's?

Sure. You could use 2 skimmers. Many corals would do well under 4 T5HO lamps, but not all. Also, make sure your fixture is a quality one. Make sure the lamps have individual reflectors. This considerably increases the output of a T5 fixture. Make sure you have quality lamps too. ATI and Giesemann are about the best you can buy.

Yes, the fish won't be effected by the light either way. They only need to see to eat.
Fish to add you mean? Well, anglers fall into the "things with stings" category.

Any fish large enough not to be eaten should be fine. You just have to make sure they are compatible tank-wise. in other words, don't put a fish that needs a 300+ gallon tank in your 90.
