You can keep multiple Angelsfish, as long as they are from different genre. Not the same species.
Building your own stand is great. Mine is home made as well as my canopy.

You can overfeed at will. Get a big enough skimmer. Use a good sized sump, adding macro algae, and possibly vodka dosing to keep your nitrates stable, where you want to keep them. And no, Im not kidding about vodka dosing, I've been doing it for a couple years now.

The 24" tall is easier to work with too unless you have really long arms. My 240g is 24, but taller with the hood. I can't come close to reaching the bottom.

Multiple Angels can work, but them being reef safe is questionable. I've seen and heard of it going both ways, so you just have to be okay living with that potential issue. I've heard adding Angels at the same time helps too, so go that way if possible.
