90 gallon aggressive/predator tank stocking help

k so its going to be a 90 gallon 48"x18"x24", ive already built the stand just need to buy the tank and some odds and ends so ive got time to hammer out the details of stocking.

fish that i really want to have and need to plan around
1x Magnificent foxface
1x harlequin tusk

others that i would really like to keep

humu rectangle trigger
a lionfish

maybes

zebra eel
coral hogfish
Axilspot Hogfish
Red Diana Hogfish
Annularis Angelfish
Majestic Angelfish

the last group of maybes are pretty much to fill in

any suggestions would be great. and much help is needed.

thanks everyone.

I think both the foxface and tusk are recommended to have a 125 gallon minimum tank. Nice fish though I'm actually changing a 125 to salt now and I intend to have the tusk in my tank! The trigger and the eel both are awesome fish for a 90 I also have a 90 that I'm setting for a similar predator tank and both are ok my list of fish I would like to get! also check out wrasses a but smaller than the tusk puffers and maybe a angler! Any of these fish would do well in a 90!

Really? Cool I read 125 on live aquaria and thought they needed the 6 ft tanks for extra swimming room! I have not kept one thought so my recommendations are strictly from reading about them!

Ahhh ok cool I trend to prefer the one spot myself awesome fish but the magnificent is beautiful without a doubt! If the other say 70 then its probably feasible to keep one in a 90 unless there's some huge difference between the species

la goes big for minimum tank size on a lot of their fish. bluezoo is what i was looking at.

also like was recommended to me by koi some time ago... bluezoo has different fish than la, and its good to look everywhere so you dont miss types of fish not typically offered and for a second opinion on recommendations.
