Stocking 250 gallon

I am in the process of setting up my 250 gallon tank with a 75 gallon sump.

I want to keep:
-clown tang
-blonde naso tang
-hippo tang
- emporer angel
And some smaller easy fish

I know your not supposed to put similar tangs together but I really am hoping I can make that work is it possible at all if so maybe some input?

Clown tangs can be huge a holes so I'd definitely make it the last fish. You could do a shoal of anthias with the fish you are adding as well as some smaller rock dwelling fish and no tanks complete without a wrasse or 2

29 Gallon FW "fat catfish" tank

Skip the clown tang. They are surge water swimmers and can get quite aggressive. I'm almost sold on them needing to be in a species only tank.
That said, you can easily replace it with a tank that size. I'm kinda surprised not to see any of the sailfin variety of tangs on your list as they are some of the more vibrant in my opinion.
