Addition Ideas?

Hey i have a 90gallon tank that has been running for almost 6 months now.
I have a humu picasso trigger fish
a maroon clown fish
a undulate trigger fish
a green wolf eel
2 blue velvet damsels
and a sally light foot crab
probably around 40 pounds of live rock.

I have been thinking and People have been telling me that i should add more to my tank
if this is correct does anyone have any suggegtions. Im thinkin a fu manchu lion fish and maybe some more cleaners

I have a 100 g canister filet and a refugium with macroalgae in it.

If it were me i would wait another month or two. It's always better to add slowly and really let the biological filtration of your tank catch up. It helps to avoid spikes in your water levels and algae blooms.

A lion fish may be a risky choice depending on how aggressive your triggers are. I've heard that triggers can really go after lionfish because the have such flowy tasty looking fins. I would ask others who have more experience with this combination. Triggers will may also become more aggressive as the settle into a tank and get comfortable so it may be worth wait a bit to make sure they don't start showing their true colors depending on how long they have been in the tank.
