new fish??

So my 90 gallon has been running for almost two years now.. I have two perc clowns, a maroon clown and a diamond orange spotted goby. I have 150- 200 lbs of rock with plenty of front and top swimming room and some hefty caves. I have a wide variety of coral and i have a halrequin and cleaner shrimp. I am looking for one or two fish that are active swimmers. Ive been looking into tangs and wrasses. Any suggestions?

I have some Blue/Green Chromis in mine. Nice chromatic colour and bluish POP. Active schooling fish. 3-5 could be nice. Smaller fish tho.

Maybe not aggressive, but Foxface, some kind of Fairy Wrasse and maybe a Flame Hawk.

The big problem ive seen is the order of adding fish due to territorial behavior and tangs seem to be very territorial. Thats why i wanted to do the tangs last. I had a blue hippo at around 1 year but i didnt do enough reaserch to know that they lay on their side when they sleep xC i actually thought it was dying so i put it in a quarantine and thats when it stressed and died.. Now that i have much more experience and knowledge im going to give it another try. I have the dual mp40's now which will provide plenty of exersize for them.

I would not put a Blue Tang in a 90g. They will stress if they do not have lots of room and a 90 simply is not enough for them to thrive in. Stress will lead to all sorts of issues. You will also get territorial issues because they will feel the whole tank is theirs.

No tangs in a tank that size. You will be wasting your money and the life of the tangs. You can certainly ignore this advice, but do your research and you will find that this is right. Many, many other fish will do great in your system.
