You should be ok. It should change a lot, just like your other parameters.

Sure!
I meant to add this little bit. Ph will change from lights on/off. What kind of top do you have? Keep in mind, glass tops or close fitting lids can limit gas exchange.

Yeah I like the ripple shadow effect on the sand bed that's why I use metal halide. It is going to be a FOWLR tank no coral of any kind. I plan to keep at least 5 tangs that's why need lots of swimming room.

132g. Well not sure yet but Naso, Pacific Blue and Yellow tangs are definitely on my list. That means at least 3 tangs. 9 chromis and 9 anthias and a ocellaris clown.
