I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

I know mine is quite a bit bigger... but I just added 20 zebra darts, 5 yellow tangs, and 125 snails/hermits and they seem to be doing fine... all parameters are within spec. With a 90g adding 5 small fish shouldn't be a problem.
Although I do recommend that when you are adding a group of fish you use some kind of bacteria. Most company's sell them... Haggen "Cycle" API "Stress Zyme+" and Seachem "Stability"

Thanks, will do.... Just did another test and everything is at zero, nitrate at 5ppm. Should I do another water change or is that as good as it gets??

I just hit 0 trates this week on my 55g. You can always aim for that.

since adding fish I have not yet done a water change... but my Nitrates are 0... under 40 for FOWLR is accepted but under 10 is recommended for a reef.

Having nitrates means that you will have more algae growth.
