Well if it is going to be a reef, get yourself the best skimmer possible. UV sterilizers are junk, I have one and it doesn't do anything. Check out reef octopus' or skimmers like that, as I'm unsure if you are going to have a sump or not.

Don't get a canister, without weekly maintenence they are nitrate factories for buildup and decomp. The HOB filter you linked will work just fine. That tied in with your live rock, skimmer, and sand you'll have enough filtration.

I hear good things about the reef octopus as well. Never had one though. I have an aqua c demoralized HOB Skimmer and it works amazing for my 35. Looks good compared to most HOB Skimmers too. You should check into these too. I got mine for marinedepot. Greet customer SUPPORT!
