Upgrading - need advice

Upgrading to a 120 gallon (from 55) system this spring, need a little advice on a couple things. What would you guys recommend for a protein skimmer and a freshwater top off system? I'm using an aquac remora right now and want to upgrade. Want to stay under $400, but want good reliable skimming. Going for a powered top off system, not gravity fed. The sump will be about 30g, and both sump and freshwater reservoir will be contained in the stand. I'm leaning towards an external protein skimmer. I'm going to get my tank from aquariumsource.com (48x24x24), and my sump/water reservoir from glasscages.com. Anyone used aquariumsource.com? (I've heard the complaints about glasscages, but not too worried for sump purposes) thanks folks
