Would a baby blue hippo tang and 2 small percula clowns be too many fish for a 30 Gallon tank?

Putting a hippo tang of any age in any tank under 75 gallons is unadvisable. There is no tang that can be kept in a 30 gallon for any great period of time. Ther percula's would be fine.

OK cool.

If I got 2 small percula clowns, what other fish would be suitable in a 30 gallon? any good suggestions for a beginner?

a royal gramma would work well with the clowns. maybe a firefish. you could probably do the gramma and the firefish. also somthing like a small (2-3) school of chromis would be cool.

I wouldn't recommend a Royal Gramma to someone new to saltwater. They are very sensitive fish and require pristine water conditions.

I've got a clown and 2 blue devil damsels right now in my 30. I tried a pygmy angel but lost him due to temp fluctuations the past few months. The blue devils are both active and hardy...and they don't bother my clown at all...

I wouldnt push it with more than 3 fish. A good rule especially for a beginner is 1" per 5 gallon some experienced go with 1" per 3 gallons. I would say the clowns and a goby, blenny, or maby even a cardinal of some type. But no more than 3 fish.
