You're maxed out for the stocking of the tank. If you plan on turning it into a reef, from the start don't buy fish that are labeled not reef safe or "with caution". That's just my 2 sense.

Ok then i probably won't eat a reef. I was only considering because it would look cool, but I figured it might be too much work and the cost would end up going skyrocketing.

It's not that difficult. If you keep simple corals they don't need a lot of requirements. For example mushroom corals, they require low lighting and low flow, and that's it. What kind of lights does the 250 come with?

Also, I was wondering all the foods you would recommend feeding all these specific types of fish.

The mandarin will probably want live foods like pods unless he's trained to eat prepared foods and even that's not a guarantee of health.
Everything else will eat prepared food like mysis shrimp and other preparations. The herbivores will like spirulina flakes and sheets of nori seaweed.
If you want to make your own food, we have several threads that cover that.
