At least cut the clown tang off, they need a lot of flow and can get super aggressive. It will swim the length of that tank very quickly

A Dwarf with a Large should be fine.

After talking to Andy Sager (who seems to know a thing or two about fish) it sounds like the key to having more than one Angel is getting them from different families and different oceans and obviously having a large enough tank with lots of places to hide.

No clown tang, unless you want to see your fish being tormented relentlessly. Obviously, it's all a crap shoot, but remember that these fish will get very large, and some faster than you think. I suggest seeing the more difficult fish like butterflies, eat at the LFS before taking them (do not take the word of the employee).

I've also heard butterfly's do better in established tanks. I've never had luck with them, so they are never on my stocking lists.

Yes the dragon wrasse sleeps under the sand. Plus crushed coral is a nitrate trap IMO.

I might go smaller to a 125 gallon but can you still have more fish with a 125 gallon tank?

I would for sure skip the big angels then. Not enough room. Get a dwarf instead.
