Yes it will work. The calvus probably need to end up being only a pair but if you choose multis they are fine all staying and will form a colony.

In addition to the shells and rocks, form bare sand six inches between. The multis like their shells (as many as 100) piled up as opposed to scattered.

Yes. The shellies will have front, back and side of tank as boundaries, plus the six inches of bare sand dividing them and the rock dwellers.

I would do either the pair of altolamps OR a pair of julidochromis, but not both. Not even a single altolamp.

Tangs are not great at singles...they just hover in place and add nothing to the tank.

I love the tribal look of calvus but julidochromis are cool with the blue edges of the fins and sometimes form a trio or even a colony in a larger tank. Pairs are more common.

Julidochromis will produce fry much faster.
