So the tank would be 265 gallons, dimensions being 72(L) 32(W) 28(H). Would this stocking list be appropriate. 1 blue hippo tang, 1 powder blue tang, 1 purple tang, 2 yellow tangs, 1 kole tang, 2 clownfish, 1 lawnmower blenny, 1 mandarin, 1 royal gramma basslet, 1 yellow watchman goby
Is this tank appropriate for my list long term? There is the possibility of rather going with something bigger like a 400 gallon but I would prefer to not go that big

I have a 265 also, though mine is the more common dimensions at 7' long. RC advises 8' tank for the hippo, which I'd generally agree with. My hippo is ok in my tank, but it's gotten quite large. All others should be fine.
