Sorry to say a 55 gallon is too small for a Heni or a Tang. The Heni needs a lot of swimming room, a very active fish. The same for a Tang. 2 of them is a 55 would raise the stress level.
That being said, if there is truly an upgrade a year from now, I would leave the Heni to itself until the upgrade is done. You could always add a Tang after the fact if the tank is large enough. What size tank are you shooting for?
BTW, welcome to the forum.
To answer your question, just about any Tang should get along with a Heni in a large enough tank. Especially if the Butterfly was added first.
