I would skip the sohal for size and aggression reasons, and add a couple other tangs instead. Maybe a P. hepatus, kole, and a powder brown.

Another way to do the big tangs/butterfly/angel would be to have a single gem and several pyramid butterflies.

An emperor in an LPS tank will quickly be an emperor in a fish only tank.

Sohal tangs get very large and aggressive.

Not familiar with the reef safeness of that butterfly.

The rest looks good.

I would avoid Sohal and Sailfins. Sohal are the meanest tangs of all. Sailfins get extremely huge. Too big for 6ft tanks.

Get an Achilles or Powder Blue instead...of course qurantine them as needed.
