Stocking predator fish

So, im starting a 90 saltwater tank and am looking for suggestions.

currently I am planning on

dwarf fuzzy lionfish
snowflake eel
dragon wrasse

i've been looking for a good fourth fish, preferably something with a lot of vibrant color, as my current list is kind of visually drab

How about a foxface? They are herbivores, not predators, but they should be fine.

Hmmm... i looked at it. It seems like it acts essentialy like a tang, swimming around the tank and occasionally picking at rocks. Something about them just strikes me as kinda boring. thanks for the input though! EDIT: i'm talking about the foxface

The foxface I had was the most energetic and interesting fish to watch in my tank.

Vulnerable? As in to other fish? Not very, they have poisoned spines that protect them.

Hmm. maybe then.

Ok, so maybe i will get the foxface, but i'm also planning on a snowflake eel, and it seems like those are some vicious little suckers...
