Stocking my 90 gallon

Hi guys I am starting up a new 90 gallon FOWLR! I am not new to the hobbie and currently have a 55 and 90 gallon tank which are both reefs!
Ok so my list would be...

Kole tang
Picasso trigger
Flame angel
Yellow coris wrasse

I do know that the trigger will outgrow my tank and at that point I will sell it! If it truly can't live happily in my tank i am compleatly open to other options! I would get it as a baby to watch it grow over time. Are there any other fish that I could add to the tank or any fish i should replace with another? Please let me know

Why would you get a fish you can't support? I guess it's okay if you have resources available to buy/sell/trade, but it still seems strange.

You could scratch the trigger and get a few wrasses.

I have a few in my 90 fowlr and its nice to watch them, they are so active. I have a red coris wrasse that I've had since he was a tiny little baby with white stripes....he is now morphing into a whole new fish...;lost his stripes and his orange/red coloring is slowly turning to a cool blue color. Some wrasses go under extreme changes as they mature which i think is pretty cool to watch as the years go by.

FOWLR tanks can be really great as you dont have to worry about coral nippers and you can get the really cool fish. lol

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

yeah, I had thoughts of getting a larger Predator type fish but really came up empty as they mostly get too big. :-( I was deadset on a harlequin tusk, but even that guy has issues with living his life out in a 90g.
Some of the wrasses i have are quite large to be honest, my lunar wrasse is at least 6-7 inches and is really the most active fish i have in there. lol

I also forgot, but what about a rabbitfish or some kind of foxface? they get a little larger and can add some nice color to your tank.

Would a Saddle Valentini puffer nip at a lionfish?

Ok so I have made my new and improved stocklist...

Kole tang
Lemonpeel angel
Lyretail anthias 1 male 2 femails
Snowflake eel

So I have another question regarding the list. I really want one more fish that will blow people away when they see it. I originally thought about an angler but was scared that it might eat my anthias. Then I was looking through LiveAquaria and saw the assorted flounder but thought it would get way to big... and suggestions on wierd, amazing fish? Thanks
