what better, Hight or Depth for a 240g Tank?

I have room for a 72 inch wide tank but I have a choice of 72x24x31 or 72x30x25. Which would be better for a FOWLER tank??

1 Trigger
1 Large Angel
1 Puffer
1 Fox Face
2 Tangs
1 Wrasse
1 Tusk fish
maybe 1 more fish

Just wanted to know if the Hight or Depth would be better for the fish?? I know Width is the best option but I am limited to 72 inch

depth is best over hight.fish swim left to right alot more than up or down also its easyier to light due to the hight.its cheaper to build aswell.
