Products for saltwater tanks please help

I have a 150 gallon over flow aquarium and I'm getting back into saltwater fish after years away from it!! I'm asking for information on what products you guys use and what products I should stay away from! Please help tell me what filters, heaters, skimmers, you get the point. I'm going aggressive fish no coral.

Reef Octopus makes good skimmers. Sumps are always nice. Especially with a predator tank. Hydor Koralias are good powerheads for the price. I personally like eheim heaters. But most brands will get the job done.

IMO you need to find a reputable LFS to guide you.

It honestly all depends on what you want to do with your sump. A skimmer (preferably rated for 1.5-2x your total volume), filter sock and return pump would be the bare essentials for a predator tank IMO, and a gfo reactor would probably be nice for phosphate control. You could also do a fuge if you wanted.
