Go for a 90 more room more fish, maybe look at one spot foxface rabbit fish or kole tang, couple of occellaris clownfish, yellow headed jaw fish, fire fish, and maybe a few cardinal fish. Should be fine for a 90 that is reef and gives you a few fish plus a nice centrepiece one with the tang or foxface. That's what I'd put in a 90 reef anyways. Unless there is anything specific takes your fancy? Will you have a sump? Just remember to add everything very slowly to ensure the bacteria has time to build

+1 on the 90. I was looking into a 75 then saw the 90 was the same footprint but has way more volume. The 75 opens up a ton of new fish that you can't have in a 55 but the 90 allows you to have more of those same fish.

I am looking into a 90 and will definitely be adding a tomini tang and a fox face. Both are really cool reef safe fish. I also have a midas blenny and would say you need one of them. They are so interesting.

but a 180 allows you to do whatever you want lol. id personally stay away from a foxface or tang. they just eat up too much stock room and get a bit big. chromis, cardinals, clowns (2 at most). a goby or blenny. those are some options

+1 to a 180 if possible. I've got a 75g now and want a 180...possibly even 300g by the end of the year.

I think the Foxface and/or Tomini would be ideal for a 75g. Neither get that big...its not like adding a large Angel or a larger Tang. Do those and some smaller fish and you'd be set. It's all personal taste though. Do what works for you.

Yeah, I should have been more specific. In a 90 the tomini tang is one of the few tangs I would recommend, they grow to 6" and will be happy in a tank that size. As for the fox face, the one spot fox face grows to 7". the foxface lo gets to big for a 90. Both the tomini and one spot are ok in a 70 if you go by live aquaria which seems to be pretty conservative.

They will take up a bit of your bio load but that is why I am going with the 90, in a 75 it would be a larger percent. This is where you can decide what you want your tank to be. You can do lots of little fish, a few big, or a mix of both.
