One other thing to consider. A 4-5' deep tank would need to be built out of 3/4-1" acrylic to withstand the water pressure.

My tank is 4 by 34 1 inch acrylic open top. I love it but if I could it again I would make it deeper (back) and only 24 inches. It's great on paper and in your head but its a real pain to clean

That exactly what the wife says. But I like having a wall to hang corals at different light zones on.

I would recommend having it a few inches off the ground to keep it from getting kicked by peoples feed. Like your kitchen cabinets, it's called a toe kick.
good luck!
