Another skimmer option is the eshopps which is pretty cheap. I have a psk 150 running on my 125g and it pulls some serious gunk. It also only cost me $109 so it was a great deal.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

For a skimmer check out the AquaC EV-180 or the 240, I have the 240 and it's a beast, I think you can get a used one on eBay for under $200.

I have a 120 on my 55g and a 240 on my 72g (only because I plan on upgrading to a 180g), I would say get the 180, the 120 is kind of small, I wouldn't use it for anything bigger than 55g. Just my opinion.

And I would like to keep a yellow tang or a purple tang(if a sale come up when I ready to add one) but only for a short time.... About how long would it take for one to out grow that tank if I buy considered to be tiny or small

My yellow has grown at least 3X his original size in just a few months. he is now, hmm, maybe 5-6 inches? And all he does is go back and forth all day long. I got a 6 foot tank just so I could have one. It was worth the wait, but it did suck waiting. lol
