The Klien will probably eat any inverts you add.

Do you have any type of structure in there or is it just sand on the bottom?

Most Reef fish like someplace to hide and sleep.

As far as fish go: You've sent yourself in a non-aggressive direction with the Klien Butterfly. So I'd say that Triggers and Lions are out.

I love Harlequin Tusks they make any tank look better

A Lyretail Wrasse would be pretty.

The Marine Betta would also be a good choice.

3 or 4 anthias schooling would be very cool.

I could go on for about an hour listing fish.
Don't buy the fish before you know the fish.

I would try a tang and a pair of clowns they would go good with a butterfly. Butterflies are know for going after corals, feather dusters, aptasia (or anenmones similar in color to aptasia), and possibly clams. You should be OK with maby some shrimp or crabs. With a 90 gall my suggestion would be a small school of chromis there great and add a lot of action to a tank. Or a couple anthias like sos suggested. But I would actually stay away from the harlequin tusk and marine bettas they are highly aggressive.
