I would recommend keeping the kole and re homeing the others, unless you plan on upgrading in the future.

The kole tang is okay by itself in the 75 gal, but the others will stress and fight and will usually take it out on the kole. I have 9 tangs.

So the Kole definitely hides a lot which I'm pretty sure is normal for them.... The Blue Hippo and Yellow tangs seem back to their normal behaviors today which is just swimming around checking things out and foraging.

I wanted to share the rest of the tank-mates to get more feedback from you all since I'm new to this. I'm hoping I'm okay and haven't made too many any other mistakes w/ wrong tank-mates. As far as upgrading to a new tank for my Blue Hippo... he'll have to stay put for now. Here's the rest of the tank-mates:

Fish:
1 coral beauty angle
1 flame angel
3 blue damsel yellow tails
2 percula clowns
1 yellow watchmen Gobi

Invertebrates:
1 Green Bubble Tip Anemone
1 star fish
1 coral banded shrimp
1 hermit crab
1 fighting conks
2 turbo snails
2 small snails

Corals:
1 green star polyp
1 coral button polyp

Avoid the conch unless you have lots of sand room, they need lots of sand bed room even with not a lot of rock they will still find a way to get stuck trust me I have a queen conch and i wouldn't recommend getting any conch

Why don't you just return him? He's probably really stressed..... Unless he's REALLY small.
