Another one of those Help-Me-Stock posts

Everything I have (I think) is listed in my sig. I've been having trouble finding a moderately sized fish that won't cause problems with what I have (and want to have eventually).
Things I've considered:
Coral Beauty - risk of picking at corals
Any of the Butterfly variety - again, risk of picking at corals

Corals are higher priority than fish for me... but I'd like a colorful, decent sized fish to add. Any ideas?

Thanks

Well I'm looking for something more along the size of my Yellow Tang so the gobies are out. I'll look up the others. Thanks!

Banggai Cardinal seems like a good possibility.

Six-line wrasse - "May attack smaller tankmates and is best kept with larger or more aggressive fishes. May shred fins and remove scales while harassing smaller fish with it's large canine teeth." - That worries me.

Many of the wrasses look cool so maybe I can find one that's more peaceful.

Anthias - Oooh, I like a lot of these and they apparently are very peaceful. I'll be on the lookout for these at my LFS.

Thanks again.

Assuming your tank has been up awhile and you have a good pods population Mandarin dragonettes are neat. You have the LR to support one.

Sorry I missed that. I even looked.

Instead of one medium-large fish have you ever considered a small school of green chromis. They hang out toward the upper third of the tank and no one really bothers them and they do not bother anyone else. 3-5 would look great in your 90g. I love mine and am planning to build up my school back up to 5.

Just a thought,

Oh, I double checked and do not see them in your sig.

For some reason I've always associated chromis with damsels (being mean little devils). An active school of fish would definitely add something different to my tank. Thanks for the idea.

Oh, maybe that was because they *are* damsels. Apparently they are the most peaceful kind. I read in one description that them swimming in the open water encourages other, more shy, fish to swim in the open.
