90 gallons really opens your options but unfortunately triggers arent in that category. You could do something like a tomini tang, kole tang, snowflake eels, fu-man-chu lion, dwarf angels, and then of course all of the nano fish like clowns etc. etc. I wish i had gone with Gold stripe maroons instead of my Ocellaris since I'm trying to get into more aggressive fish and they are my main limitation. You could get some really nice fish just make sure to do your research. I use vividaquariums.com and liveaquaria.com to look at fish and get ideas of what to buy and then have it ordered locally.

for dwarfs you could keep any of them really it just, like you said, limits your other fish. Angels, rabbitfish, tomini tang, kole tang, butterflies, etc. all of those if you get a small lion and a decent size on each of your other fish you should be fine. i really like the mombasa and russell lions. by the way its my thread so you can highjack if you want i already got my answer i was looking for.

Yeah sorry wasn't my intention just thought I'd take chance to tap knowledge and I was maybe thinking of a dwarf zebra defo.. Do you think a snowflake eel and a Russell's with a few soft corals would work?

Should be okay until the snowflake gets full grown.

They get to 2' but can be kept in as little as 50 gallons. They don't move around much.

Didn't mean to confuse. Liveaquaria says 50 gallons and they are pretty conservative. Just be sure your rock work gives him a nice cave and keep the little fish away and the lid on tight.

That stock should be fine. I've seen multiple tanks with full grown eels and lions together without issues. Just make sure your rock work is stable too. You should be fine. Keep him well fed and he shouldn't bother any of your fish. A well fed tank is a peaceful tank.
