As of right now im lucking into getting a 90 gallon tank with metal stand for $75 so im going to move my lone frontosa and my 3 orange comps into the 90g. out of my 55g they are in now. Question is how many more fronts can i add tot he tank? I have a male brunidi that is about 6" now and i can only get 1-2" guys from my lfs. My orange comps are about an inch and the 6" front wont touch the comps or even act like hes trying to eat them. So im wondering if i get some fronts that are between an inch to two inches how many i should get and the number im looking for in the 90g

That's kind of a tough question. First of all a 6 inch front could definitely make a snack out of a 1-2" fish...expecially newly introduced. Sometimes fish that grow up together are less apt to eat eachother. But when small ones are introduced, they usually get eaten. Assuming your large front would not eat them...the next question is how long will they be in the 90. No matter how many you put in there, your frontosa will outgrow your 90 gallon (sorry to tell you that). If it's just temporary, you could get away with 8 frontosa in there for several months.

If a fish can fit in another fish' mouth then they could be a meal or snack. I have been able to add 2 1/2" F1 Mobas in with my wc moba adult colony with a problem.

In a 90g you could add 8-10 fish this size. Fronts are slow growers but you should definitelyy be looking for a larger tank. My 180g 6x2x2 tank has worked well for me.
