You could get more in this 4 ft tank then you could get in a standard 4 ft tank. The extra width will help to make up for the lesser length. My 125 is long but about 1/2 your width. If you got three different shape and color tangs you should be OK IMO. BTW

Well, if you that go for a DSB so you don't have to dive into the tank to reach the bottom haha. like a 4-5" DSB then you can keep some really neat sand sifters as well.

They would be fine in that tank in all likelihood, seeing as I've seen some not so smart people keep them for years in 100 gallon hex tanks.

By the way...Use plus rite 250watt Metal halides. A 14k 250 watt is 14 dollars and it lasts 6+ months. Decent blues, a lot of light, and 500% cheaper than comparable lights. Made in China haha.

Be all-end all? Likely story! I've said something similar to that myself!

I didn't know the Tang police had an air force! On a serious note, I think I have the 65 gallon sold. 400 bucks, I am keeping some of the rock for the sump in the new tank. I am hoping to have the 250 in a couple weeks.

I could also use some recommendations for a skimmer on this beast.
