In my opinion a long tank is a better option. More rockscaping possibilities and the stocking can be a little different as the fish usually need back and forth room rather than top to bottom space.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

And lighting is cheaper for reef tanks cause the water is shallower.

Ah ty very much for the advice.
Right now a got an empty 20g that i wanted to build with sw, but its kinda small. I think 29g can be perfect for a kid room. Don't want only 2 fish too.

So who will be caring for this tank?

When you say "little boy", how little. I see bad things happening with a tank in a childs room lol. Mine is in the living room right outside my oldest daughters room. She comes out and looks but I'd notice if she ever dared to put something in it. Maybe this would be a better option for your tank?
