In-sump skimmers are much better than HOB. Added like mentioned above a sump will hide almost all equipment and make the tank look much nicer. Essentially everything but powerheads could go in the sump, skimmer, heater, etc.

Added you get the benefit of making it a fuge to house macroalgae and reduce your phos and nitrates to 0ppm, always a great thing to have

1) RO/DI (Tap Water in the Saltwater Reef)

2) Sump (Added water volume is a great thing)

3) Protien Skimmer (Removes DOC`s which end up as excessive nutrients in your tank. They cause nuisance algea.

4) UV steralizer ( Ran one for years but decided later not really worth it. JMO)

Once you get it you'll wonder why you didn't get it when you started. Great bit of kit.
