Should be fine for quite some time, but may eventually need to upgrade depending on disposition. They are normally fairly easy-going with an assortment of tankmates, but you know that a temper comes with age :P They always seem to be active and easy to get eating prepared foods so I wouldn't worry much unless you have invertebrates such as shrimp and crabs that it would find quite yummy.

cuban hogfish get fairly large and aggressive. Hogfish are actually part of the wrasse family, and have the same temperment as the larger wrasses , such as the Lunar wrasse. It's a good probability he would eventually bully and kill most of those fish you currently have, except the purple tang who can defend itself with it's scalpel.
