Haha well it would go in my 30 gal salt, and i really want good filtration so would it be smart to get a good filter, or should i get an ok filter for 30 bucks because i also have a protein skimmer... Haha

Haha well my brother doesnt really want a canister filter, he thinks its to much filtration for a 30 gal. How about an aquaclear 70 filter? Can i get one for 30 bucks?

A 205/206 isn't enough for a 30g tank IMO. A 305/306 would be better.

Oh so the canister filter woul be smart to buy for 60 dollars? Because we also have the protein skimmer so would a high quality filter be necessary?

It would definitely be better than nothing. If that were your sole source of filtration, it wouldn't be enough.
