I would put one in. At least for a couple years until it outgrows it. Kole or scopus would work.

Sure. Any of those with the round bodies should be ok for a couple years. It all depends on how fast they grow. You will know when it's time to re-home it.

That's up to the fish, but in my experience, yellow tangs seem to be a bit on the territorial side. Maybe last for that one.

I already have a sump and a skimmer but would a canister filter be worth adding too? if so what would be worth putting in it?

Adding a canister isn't necessary especially if you have a sump, I would advise against it solely for the fact that if you don't keep them clean (weekly cleanings) they do more harm than good. I did want to go back to lighting. If your going to be purchasing lights I would recommend you skip t5 lights and look at LED. You can get an LED fixture for the same or less than you would pay for a decent T5 but without no need to spend an additional $200 a year on lamp replacement. Also with LED You will be able to keep more light demanding corals provided you buy a decent and reputable brand. I know mrX uses taotronics as do alot of others with good results. I use pharos and am very happy with them, a little more money but has some nice features the Taos don't have. Electronic control being one that will slowly brighten and dim your lights when they turn on and off so I don't need a timer.

thank you for the advice unfortunatley I already have the T5 lights . I got them for a bit of a bargain though off someone on ebay and paid £40 for the fixture and some spare bulbs. I will defo bare in mind the LED fixtures in the future though.

What sort of cuc would people recommend if any as obv any shrimp/ crab will become snacks I'm guessing? Would snails suffer a similar fate?

I wouldn't use any crabs or snails in this tank. You don't need them anyway.
