Rookie question

Hello guys I had a quick question I'm starting my tank all over again from a predator tank to a reef tank with possibly soft corals maybe later hard corals, my question is I have a hang on filter on the back now but I wanted to change the filtration system,what do you guys recommend a canister filter or a tunzee 9002 hang on the back protein skimmer ? Pls I would appreciate the help

I'd go with the skimmer + live rock + water changes method over canister filters. With corals you'll want low nitrates, and you'll have trouble with the canister.
