I'm looking for a larger fish for my 90 gallon mainly SPS reef. My current stock is:

2x false percs
1x Orange Stripe Prawn Goby
1 melanurus wrasse
4 black axial chromis

Also would like a royal gramma and maybe a mccoskers.

I'm looking for a medium fish that's not small like everything I have. I understand the issues with tangs not only the active part but the waste they put out. I don't want that route. I'm thinking a pyramid butterfly. I want something with nearly 0% chance of going after coral, inverts, etc I understand that this is not do able in real life but I want something close.

Here is the tank:

If I had to choose between a pyramid butterfly and something like a tomini tang, one of the smallest tangs that maxes out 6", I'd go with the tang. Pyramids are pretty active swimmers and rather large.

Thank you for your opinion. To be honest I didn't realize there was a tang "small" enough that would do ok in a tank less than 120 gallons. :dance:

I have a swallowtail angel in my 90 gallon. Very active fish

Our Tomini Tang is super awesome and would work in your tank. He's a very active algae grazer and his yellow fins are quiet showy. Love him.
