Unless you plan on keeping a powerhead in the containers with the sand and rock, you should just let it all dry out. It will smell for a few weeks, but you would get the same result if you stored that rock and sand without current...

You can keep anything your water quality will allow with that much light. Some SPS or other high light corals will probably need to be closer to the top but thats plenty of light for anything.

you might want to check but i think the angels will kill each other. you should only have one angel unless they are a mated pair.

The funny thing about dwarf angels is that there like clowns kinda, They can change there sex and juveniles have no sex as they mature they take a sex on depending on the sercumstance. If I get one anglefish larger than the other one or two they should for a pair/harem. harem being 1 male and more than one female.

i'm almost certain they will kill each other if they are not paired before hand or unless your tank is huge but a 40 gal tank is certainly gonna cause problems because pairing does take time and that size is not enough forthe submissive one to run and hide.
