I say maxed out and eventually the hippo will need a larger tank but that's just my opinion.

What about inverts..? I have a 30 gallon also.. That I have 2 cleaner shrimp and a ton load of hermit and snails.. Can I put them in my display and take out the firefish and nemo.. And add something else..? Also soon I'll be getting a 210 gallon in about a year or so

Nice I mean the hippo has a long while before he outgrows it but it's too you have a tank for it. I think they'd be fine in the big tank. If you got rid of the clown and firefish you could add 2 more small fish

You won't have many inverts in the tank for too long with the marine betta. I have one in my reef tank. They love munching on crabs and shrimp...size depending of course. Things like hermits and snails will be fine.

Totally. 2 tangs in a 125 can be iffy...just a handful of big fish in there that might cause issues before the upgrade.

Don't forget the cow fish fellas, it can get close to 2 foot and releases poison when stressed and it's recommended at 250 gallons
