Very nice, I'm going to be putting my 90g up in a few weeks myself so I'll follow along.

Just so you know, quite a few people are going to comment on that blue hippo. Once it gets a little bigger it's really going to need a bigger tank.

The yellow tang might like a little larger of a tank too.. Not a terrible problem if you have someone to give them too
Not sure if you are aware of the tangs that can be kept or are recommended I should say?

Yellow tang in a 75g / 90g tank is debated but I see enough people agreeing that it can work to give it a try myself. I currently have one going through hyposalinity for my 90g. Worst case scenario it's a good reason for a tank upgrade in the next year or so

I think it can vary by the actual fish itself. I'd say pry 85% need larger tanks though. In this hobby there is always and exception.

I know about the tangs, and I do have someone to give them off too. 😊
