It's awesome it seems really unique. Do you think I could have a tang in there or is the overall swimming length to short

I would stick to something like a kole tang. I was looking at having a tank of very similar dimensions made out of acrylic a long time ago and that was the road I was going to take when it came to the world of tangs.

No worries I'd like a fox face if anything. Hopefully this tank will look good I think the scape is going to be quiet hard to get right

Will you be making an acrylic or glass box around the standpipes? It seems like there was one before, judging by the square impression on the bottom pane. You might want to consider that since it will be beneficial. If those bulkheads ever leaked, you would have to drain the entire tank to service them. Plus, it will help stop fish and inverts from making it to the sump.
