Would all fish be fine inside my 20 gallon QT for 8 weeks or do I need a bigger QT?

Would a 55 gallon qt work? My brown tang is the largest one and it's only 4 inches.

Brown tang
Naso tang
Sailfin
3 damsels

IMO, I'd take those fish back to the LFS and start a new stocking plan. Sorry, but if the "brown tang" you're referring to is a powder brown, it's prob going to turn into a bully, the naso and sail fin are going to get WAY to big for a 90, and damsels are just bullies themselves, so if you do restock with appropriate sized fish, they'll bully the new ones. If you keep those fish is a 90, they're gonna get stressed, bully each other to death or get LLE or similar diseases.

And I doubt they'd be very happy in 55 for long together, especially under the stress of treatments! IMO

Sorry;(

Cosmo is right rich,,those tangs simply won't be comfortable in a 90 and this will lead to a lot of other issues in the future
