27.5 inches tall is going to be a pain for a reef. You won't be able to reach the bottom. I would suggest not getting anything that's over 25". My tank is 25" tall, and I have trouble reaching the bottom towards the middle of the tank.

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

This is the ad.

180 gallon Oceanic glass aquarium, minimal scratches, custom drilled overflow that takes up almost NO space in tank. Beautiful dark wood stand and canopy, could use some stain touch ups at bottom of stand.
Coralife lighting with 4 actinics, 3 metal halides, 4 led moonlights (2 are out) bulbs are still good.
Custom 40 - 45 gallon sump with return pump, PM redline 225 skimmer, Coralife UV sterilizer with pump. 3 power heads, unsure of gpm anymore. Large mag float. 1 Coralife t5 light kit for sump, if you want to use sump as refugium, bulbs need to be replaced. Power strips, light timers, plumbing, and 6 sump socks. Feeding clips, glass scrapers, turkey baster, and 10 - 5 gallon jugs. 2 - 35 gallon brute trash cans, used for water changes only. 2 heaters.
The fish are amazing and coexist beautifully. 1 LARGE hippo tang - eats from your hand and allows "petting". 1 LARGE Foxface butterfly fish that's more like a dog that a fish 2 tomato clowns that spawn regularly and do not terrorize other fish. 1 lone chromis. 2 large yellow tangs. All of the fish are fat, healthy, no signs of ich for well over a year, happy eaters. I large long spine sea urchin, 1 large coral banded shrimp. Multiple tube worms, purple and yellow sponges. 1 large hermit.
All soft corals, beautiful torch coral, tree corals, multiple different mushrooms, 2 rose anemones, healthy and host clowns. Rock with green star polyps. 100+ lbs live rock.
Hate to let this go but would rather it be with someone who has the time to care for it. Buyer will be responsible for moving fish corals and tank.

What do you think about the overflow? Should I buy a HoB for the other side?

Ok so I decided to go with this used 180 because of the price.

I don't want to keep any of the sand it comes with and I don't want to transfer the sand from my 90.

Would I be able to arrange the rock work on the glass, and transfer all the fish and corals. Then add the sand once I receive it without having to remove all the fish and corals again?

I've used egg crate with some tanks and not with others. lol It was easy enough to put in so I would vote for yes, better safe than sorry.
