Eventually In the tank I want an emperor angel, possibly a clown trigger, a naso tang a purple tang and maybe a queen angel.. Would this be ok?

that's 6 tangs, 2 angels, and a dwarf angel. id say that's too many for a 240. not that its too many fish but housing 6 tangs in a tank is extremely difficult, unless of course its a monster tank (500g+)

Having two large Angels can have aggression issues. Usually it is one per tank, almost regardless of size. Angels are my favorite fish, but I plan on putting only one large Angel in my 240g. I'm going to try two dwarfs (already have a Singapore Angel and am considering adding a Multi-bar or multicolor too)... maybe even a Pygmy.

I agree with the too many Tangs thought too. If your group is good with one another, I'm not sure I would risk adding another and possibly disturbing that group dynamic.

yeah if you have more than 2 tangs already I wouldn't even consider attempting to add another one for fear of upsetting the balance. the 800g display tank at the family fish store I worked at had 5 tangs. granted could of put more in but still they used all 10 feet of that tank.
