New saltwater tank, stocking help?

I'm thinking about getting a 90 gallon saltwater tank and I need some compatibility help.
So the fish I'm thinking about getting are:
Chain eel
Sailfin tang
2x Cardinalfish

For bottom feeders possible fighting conchs? How many do you think I should have if I do get them? Suggestions?
Would my tank have too much room, or too little?
Sorry for all the questions, any replies appreciated. Thanks!

For the bottom feeders get a goby. a bullet or pink spotted goby as they will sift sand keeping it clean for you.



You can view many of my fish and corals in my photo albums in my profile.

A sailfin will get really large and a 90 won't be able to keep it happy for its whole life. I'd suggest a different tang that doesn't get as large.
