Decent light for starter marine with easy corals?

I was looking at this light

http://www.finnex.net/index.php/prod...ugeray-marine2

Which I can get cheaper on Amazon but was wondering if anyone could steer me into the direction of some other decent lights that could grow easier corals that won't break the bank and MIGHT give out some of that shimmer effect that might be better?

Also possibly an hob skimmer and save maker...... I guess basically build my tank? Lol

I was going to just use my old hob whisper filter that set up for fresh and convert it but I hear that's not the best idea though doable.
Thanks

29 gallon tank. Budget is kind of flexible but don't want to spend 1000 bucks

I recently started a 29 gallon tank and got a Aqua Illumination Prime and I absolutely love it, its super easy to use and very very customizable for schedules and strength of different LEDs and doesn't break the bank either. I also got the aquatic life 115 internal mini protein skimmer its fairly cheap too and as i'm typing this i did a couple EASY modifications to make it work even better than it already did
