Fish are what I want to be the main focus, but I do really like some of the corals. As long as the fish I chose are okay with some reef

Agree with mr_x about Glass Cages. The caveat to getting items from them is that you'll keep the bit so future projects are always a possibility. I have plans to drill a tank someday as well. I found this but haven't ventured far enough to know if it's for real or not. http://www.salt-city.org/showthread....ss-is-tempered.

Glass holes, not glass cages . Pretty interesting link!

Besides adding an overflow, you will need a sump. I suggest buying the largest tank you can fit inside the stand, and partitioning that into sections depending on what components you will want in there.
You'll also need a return pump, to send water from the sump back to the display. A "Quiet One 4000" or a "Danner Magdrive 9.5" should be plenty.
A protein skimmer is a good investment, and will help keep the water clean. Measure the inside of your stand so I know what tank you'll be able to fit in there, so i can suggest a good skimmer.
Lighting- two of these
New Dimmable 120W Aquarium Coral Reef Fish Tank White Blue LED Grow Light US | eBay
Or two of these-
Aquastar 165W Dimmable LED Aquarium Light Full Spectrum Reef Coral Fish Marine | eBay
Will work perfectly for whatever corals you intend to keep.

Argh !!! My phone hates me and thank you for the correction. 👍 With 11 tanks laying around, I have yet to try the instructions in the link. Unless someone else beats me to it in the near future 😜.

I have a 75 fowlr (fish only with live rock). Here is a list of what I have running mine.

Display tank:
Cpr over flow cr90
2 circulation pumps rated at 900gph
100+pounds of live rock
I used 2-50lb bags of pool filter sand for substrate .
Metal halides for lighting, but currently switching to led lighting from usa current
I have a wisper filter that I run with filters only.

Sump:
20 gal tank
Two sections.
1st, bio balls this is were the display tank water enters. I have it going through a filter pad then trickling over the bio balls.

2nd
I just have live rock, two heaters ( incase one would fail) thermometer, and my return pump with is a 800gpm pump.

My system works good for me I would like to upgrade my sump to include a protien skimmer and maybe some miracle mud with chaeto

Hope this helps out somewhat
