Awesome tank I will go with a orange tang but I think they will eat your corals. Tangs are my favorite I'm a mobile so probably a dumb question but what's that box in the top?

I have a coral beauty in my 55 reef, but I wouldn't put one in anything less than a 50. They can live happily in less, yes, but dwarf angels spend their days swimming around nipping at algae all day long and would increase the likelihood of getting a taste for corals once it consumed the algae. Would just consume algae faster than it could grow.

What kind of fish are you thinking about? An active swimmer or one that hangs around in one spot? My suggestion would be my favorite fish in my reef tank, Saltwater Aquarium Fish for Marine Aquariums: Tank Bred Indigo Dottyback, Pseudochromis sankeyi x fridmani

water flows into that box. a tube then sucks it out into a larger box behind the tank. that box has a large drain fitting in it that drains down into a sump located below the tank. google aquarium sump to understand better

This is a little off topic but I think it is interesting how much the appearance can vary in one species. This is what my little guy looks like.
