I would just go for the biggest you can afford or fit into your space otherwise you may start looking to upgrade shortly afterwards

how about a 5 foot SCA 150 lots of them around and pretty good price to.

IMHO the 90 corner would be the last tank unless it was the only space i could have a tank. hard to aquascape. there is always space for a bigger tank in the room :D

for 4 footers I like water box and red sea but SCA does have a nice 120 as well all are worth checking out.

Since you only have 5’ of available space your length is pretty much set at 4’ so only thing I can offer is that I wouldn’t go above 30” high. This is because over that depth very hard to reach bottom.
 

Do you have a local "hobby" friend you can call on when you need them?
