They are normally just referred to as Coeaner Shrimp. Sometimes they are called scarlet cleaner shrimp.

Shrimp really don't have that much Bioload, so you can have a pretty good amount.

Hmmmm, well each shrimp does need their space, so in a 90g, I would say maybe 7-ish. LOL

If you like color you'll like the fire red cleaner. Look up that, then look up the skunk. You'll see.

In a 90, I'd do no more than 4 and be ok if one didn't make it past acclimation.

Cost more though.

As far as the Tang debate goes, overly stressing out a fish is 1) a waste of your time and money and 2) more importantly, why get a fish if you do not house the proper accommodations.
As far as shrimp go, I have two cleaner shrimp and two fire shrimp in my 120 reef tank and they are absolutely beautiful. The fire shrimp are very very shy though, usually they hang back in the shadows, the scurry out for food real quickly and than run back to the rocks.
