If I was stocking a 90 gallon it would look like this

A) pair of Wyoming clownfish
B) one yellow OR purple tang (more aggressive though and $$$$)
C) 5-7 green Chromis

I would not put a purple tang in a 90. Needs a larger tank.

Keep your eye on the gsp. It'll spread very fast. Good luck with stocking the tank. Remember to take it slow and be patient.

He can be mean in a larger tank too. He killed $500 worth of fish in my buddy's 125 gallon. I would put him last in any tank.

To the OP, I would certainly focus on buying fish adding 1-2 of them at a time at least one week apart. By the time you are done stocking fish you should be ready for corals.

It's not about aggression but with how big they get.

Not as big as you imagine. But then again based on your other posts you are very conservative when it comes to stocking.
From BlueZooAquatics
". Like most members of the genus, they feed nearly continuously on both micro- and macroalgae. Large adults may reach 22 cm in the wild, but most are half that size."

VividAquariums: "Purple Tangs tend to be extra aggressive towards conspecifics"
BlueZoo Description:
Scientific Name Zebrasoma xanthurum
Disposition Aggressive

So I guess it is about aggression isn't it?
