I too switched from fw
last year & I have the IM Micro 30
For lighting i have the matching 92w Skkye Light, like it a lot except two things:
hi power fixtures can be loud(fans)
2) This model is not dimmable
As for the skimmer i went with the new 9001 from Tunze, after a couple of different configurations i got it dialed in! Its also dead quiet. Since you don't have much of a bioload you can hold off on the skimmer till just before stocking.
One important thing that you need to start off with before getting your tank wet is a quality RO
unit, trust me its worth it in so many ways!
I also did some other important upgrades that i think are a must imo
1) InTank media baskets, stock ones are pita, also look at the custom caddy from IM, I have one on my IM Nuvo 8, almost as good & less expensive if you shop around. You can run the stock ones with the supplied sponge media till the cycle is done.
2) if u find a quiet light and you don't want to hear the tank @ all, Sicce 1.5 pump upgrade is worth it. With my dawn/dusk & moonlights only running all i can hear is a bit of water flow from the surface skimmer flowing into the baskets in the back chambers & that can be almost eliminated if you have the water level higher.
3) add a IM spin stream, the extra variable flow is nice & its a cheap add on.
4) media reactor, a must for gfo
and or carbon. I have the Two Little Fishes Phosepan 150, works awesome, very inexpensive & if you did the pump upgrade you can either use the stock pump on it or add some extra plumming and tap off of the Sicce.
5) ATO is a must as i go through about 5 gallons of RO
per week. I have the Tunze Nano Osmolator, great for the price, comes with the pump with lots of head for the matching stand height and is easy to set up & is not expensive.
6) quality test kits for Nitrate, Phosephate, Alkilinity, Magnesium & Calcium. FW
kits like API are not good enough if you plan on having a reef tank.
7) refractometer is needed, not a hydrometer as they are not good enough!
All of these upgrades really don't have to be done till the tank is cycled & your cuc go in so hou have some time to research & purchase a bit at a time.
The rest of your hardware looks great, enjoy the salty side!
