Setting up 80gal fowlr

I I'm setting up a 24x24x31 high 80 gal with overflow fowlr tank confused on filtration have a gfo reactor a carbon reactor and a uv waiting on stand to be finished so I can order a wet dry !! Want to get the biggest one I can fit in the 24in stand .. And i purchesed eheim 1260 pump for sump also purchased a fluvial g6 .. Will add a skimmer 2 ... Do u think I am making a smart move with the fluval g6 I figure the tank is so high the fluval will filter the water from the bottom not just skimming the surface !! More filtration the better ??? Or should I return the g6 and get a power head ?? I don't want to create to much turbulence for fish I know it's good for coral but the fish always look disturbed fighting the strong currents 24/7 !! I just dont feel the wet dry is enough for a 80gal tank they don't do mechanical filtration enough figure the g6 will help out !! Thanks for any replies been out of hobby 4 fifteen years lots of new equipment out now

Premium live rock with good color last time I had a tank I had a mix of fish this time I want all calm fish !! Clowns, golby,yellow tang, shrimp , crabs, star fish nothing aggressive !! I would maybe like to add a mushroom or too and some feather dusters if possible .. I ordered a real good light so lighting is not a problem !! The only thing is the tank is a center piece in my room only the back is out of view so I could not add power heads on the sides 4 flow like I see everyone is doing these days !! So I hope the wet dry with the eheim 1260 and the fluval g6 would be sufficient !!

And if any one has a recommendation on a wet dry to buy it would help thanks !! I know a lot of reef people have a ref sump but all the stores I go to say wetdry for a fowlr set up !! Need a easy setup I work long hours and travel for a week at a time at least 2 times a year some sumps with the liverock look easy due to the filter sock but will it be enough for my tank

I would definitely looks at some of the Gobies! One of my favorites is the Yellow Watchman Goby. Unfortunately Yellow Tangs need a tank of at least 125 gallons.
