Well keep asking questions to build up knowledge before starting a tank. That is a very important part of the process.
A good example is your fish choices, as tangs are very easily stressed and need to be very large tanks to remain healthy. Being on a budget, it would be a waste of both money and a beautiful fish.
Check out liveaquaria.com and you can start getting ideas on what you want to do for a tank. Then you can make sure the fish you are selecting are reef safe, since you are thinking about doing so later on down the line.
