If you were to get each one of these fish, youd never be able to house corals, never be able to house inverts, or anything short of a fish. Say if you did decide to take the plunge on a huge tank, we will say 500g, for 3-200g boxes of salt, thats over $150. If you did a 15% wc every week, thats 75g, which would translate to roughly 25-30 bucks. Youd need 500 lbs of rock. Even at $3/lb thats $1500. A decent skimmer to take care of this, is going to be $700-800. Im not attempting to upset you or bring you down. I just want to help you understand the sheer costs involved in a tank like this
Why so you say I wouldn't be able to house corals. The only fish that will eat corals are the angels if I'm unlucky. Triggers hardly ever do.

The angels, butterflys, and triggers. Triggers arent 100%. Its very possible to end up with a trigger that nips at corals

I read that they normal dont eat them they can just can pick them up and now them around. And getting them while there young will reduce the chance won't it, as well as keeping them well fed?

My vote is i wouldnt get anything less than a 220g. If I had the choice of getting a custom tank i would go with the 7 or 8 foot one and go with 300g. I was looking into glasscages awhile back and they were actually quite reasonable.

Thats still alot of fish. lol

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