I would suggest reading "The Concientious Marine Aquarist" by Robert Fenner before you set up the tank. It has lots of info that will help you out. I agree with fishfreek about the gadgets and gimmicks. LR
, and a good skimmer will handle your filtration. Some folks don't use a skimmer. I do. I think it gives you a safety buffer when you're getting started. You can make the tank as automated as you want to...depends on what you're willing to spend. There are controllers that will monitor many of the levels in the tank. There are eletronic probes for pH, salinity, ect... Be warned that they require maintenance and calibration though.
Can you tell us more about what your goals are for this tank? What kind of corals do you want to keep? What kind of fish? Once we know more about what you want to do, we can make equipment recommendations that will be specific to your needs.
