Hi! Welcome to the forum!

you can use plain old sand, doesnt have to be live. the "live" part will come in time.

If you want an average sandbed depth i would go with about 40lbs or so. Also depends on the foot print of the tank.

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