First 150 galon build

I'm starting my first build thread. It's a 150 gallon. I plan on doing a predator tank instead of my first idea with a banded cat shark. I plan on getting a Niger trigger, a black belly trigger, a panther grouper, a bicolor parrot, a volitan lion, a yellow tang and a blue tang. I got this 150 gallon for a nitro rc car and a truck tool box. So I'm really only in 300 seeing that I didnt pay anything for the truck tool box. It came with the tank, stand, and what looks like a 30 gallon sump tank. Could be a little more idk. Now I just need a return pump and the salt. I already have the sand. I also need live rock. Anyone know where I can get live rock cheap? Cause I'm gonna need alot. I also have a emperor 400 bio wheel hangover filter.

What are the dimensions of that? It doesn't looks like a standard 150.

A standard 125g is 72x18x22. That's probably what you have.
