The Kleinii butterfly needs meaty foods (shrimp, mussels etc) while the Threadfin needs his vegies (nori, asparagus, etc). You haven't mentioned the tangs/surgeons name so I cant comment but most tangs also feed on vegies. If you're making your own food, then try to incorporate all these together. If you're going to purchase frozen foods from your LFS, then you need to consider the different needs of your fish and get a good mix or 2/3 foods to meet all your fishes feeding requirements. The damsels are not particular about their food.

Variety is the spice of life! One word of caution though, homemade frozen can b tricky. Make sure u have the correct filtration equipment as they release a crap load of nutrients into the system, which can destabilse a small, new or inadequately filtered system. I use Omega flakes, pellets, Hikari frozen, nori and homemade frozen
