Will it be ok to add a tomini and a yellow tang to my 90g? In the sense of will they fight with eachother? Would I have to introduce them at the same time?

2 tangs in a 90g tank is likely to result in problems so I do not suggest it.

The tomini will be fine. I would suggest a 6' tank for a yellow tang though.

Any other ideas for some "swimmers" to go with a tomini? I already have a pair of clowns

If you do decide to add both even in a bigger tank then yes add both at the same time. They will scrap for a while but turn the lights off for several hours and then they should be OK.

I would say yes if you have enough filtration and they like eachother.. Lol. If you don't want 2 tangs go for a dwarf angel.

I know I`ll be jumped by the Tang police but I personally think that those two will be OK in a 90. Yes a 6 ft tank will be better but that goes for all fish. I do believe that the bristle tooth species and the yellow tang are the only tangs that would do OK in that size tank.
