what skimmer would you buy for 75 gal salt tank

What skimmer would you purchase for a 75 gallon new salt water tank. I will not be doing reef just live rock and fish and plants. I'm new to this help.

A Remora Pro would be an easy choice. Maybe even a Remora (non-Pro) if you keep a light bio load. Are you going to have a sump? What is your budget?

Is there a difference between a sump and lets say a cannister filter? I was looking at the eheim wet dry cannister filter? Would you do a sump and if so which one? How big is your tank?
