SW newbie. Skimmer or...?

Hello everyone I'm new to the marine fish. I started up one that is a 35 gallon and still have it running off a marineland penguin 200 biowheel HOB filter. Also I have an aqueon pro 100 heater and an air pump w bubble wand. I have CC substrate and some live rock and fake plants.(pics in album) I was wondering what would be a good protein Skimmer for the price for my size tank. I don't want to do a sump but maybe some other form of filtration besides a Skimmer. Also looking to get 1 or maybe 2 powerheads for my tank. Any affordable ideas??

1st welcome to the salty side. Lol.
As for a HOB skimmer I would suggest a Aqua C Remora that should be more then enough for you size tank.
I suggest getting rid of the bubble wand that is more for freshwater usage useless in SW IMO.

Just my $.02
