110 gallon build!!!

So I just got a 110 gallon reef ready tank with a stand for 100 bucks. The tank itself is in very good condition, just needs a little cleaning. I'm starting this build thread to get an idea of what i wanna put in it. I would like some suggestions on what to do and comments in my progress. I'm still in the process of acquiring parts because I only have the tank and stand. So everyone please feel free to comment and what-not. I will start posting some pics soon but in the mean time please join. I need help deciding on some fish for my tank

Nice deal for $100! Do you want corals in the future cause that will dictate some of your fish choices.

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

Also, the pump I wanna use is for ponds. Do any of you think it will work? It pumps out 3600 gph and at 6 feet high it will pump between 1800gph - 2000gph. Will this work for a 110gallon tank
