90 gallon fowlr stocking ideas

I have a 90 gallin fowlr with 100+ lbs of live rock and plenty if swimming space. I have a pair of perc clowns, a bangaii cardinal, 3 blue-green chromis, lawnmower blennie, and a royal gramma. Everyone us doing fine, but they are all small fish, the tank lacks a fish of size. I eventually would like a flame angel, but was wondering what else I could go with.

Thanks

Flame angels wont get that big either...sadly (I want one of those as well). You may want to look for a Tang of some sort.

A Naso Tang would be awesome. I have one in my 180g and it is in constant motion.

Would you like this tank to eventually become a reef? If so, all of the fish that you want are reef save, except the flame angel. Just a thought, maybe go with a differant fish that isnreef save so that you have options in the future

Edit: a naso tang needs a 180 gallon so i wouldnt subject him to a 90. A yellow tang would do much better IMO.

I always thought tangs needed 5 feet of tank length. What about butterflies?

I depends on the type of butterfly...I can get smaller ones in my 75. You can research different types by looking at online fish stores like saltwaterfish.com...they usually have a minimum tank size listed for the fish. There are a lot of online resources to use!

I believe that liveaquaria.com also has minimum tank requirements (and care difficulty level) as well.

Guess maybe I will go with a yellow tang. Like the blues, and really like moorish idols, but I am pretty sure that a 90 gallon is just not big enough.

It is my understanding that Moorish Idols are pretty difficult to keep. I have heard it is hard to get them the proper diet in the aquarium. No direct experience with them but my lfs owner doesn't like to bring in fish that don't do well in captivity and that one is on his list.

Thinking about a fox face. How dangerous are the spines?
