Beautiful fish, but they are a jumbo cyp. Depending on the footprint of the tank, some of the smaller xenos (papilio, Flavipinnis etc.) would be nice.

Would a pair of adult calvus be a bad idea to throw in
With juvenile karilani cyps lets say 10 along with
Lets say 6 juvenile multies with plenty of shells

Pile of rocks for the calvus one end, pile of shells for the multis the other, cyps mid water. Sounds alright to me.
1 1/2" cyps would be big enough to fend for themselves. Could always get smaller juvie calvus and let them grow out.
Have got cyps, multis and Julies (stay amongst their rocks and crevises) which all have their own part of the tank and don't really overlap or bother each other much.
Am looking to up-size my tank from 50gal to 150gal and want to squeeze in calvus or comps too.

Ended up with 11 cyp micro karilani juveniles
10 multies juveniles
Unfortunately only was able to get 1 calvus and was labeled as black zambian calvus also juvenile

So lost one cyp, another one might be next,
Looks like 1 or 2 multies are picking at the cyps
I have rock piles on both ends of the tank and piles of shells for the multies
