Starting a 72 gal Salt

Just wanted to say hi and tell you a little about new tank.

72 gal and my set up so far is...First my husband does not do anything small and he has built me a sump and a water staging system in the basement. The water will go through an RO unit to a 40 gallon Rubbermaid container in the basement where the water will be preprocessed before getting pumped upstairs to the tank. He has placed a switch under the tank to pump the water up to the salt tank which has a 20gallon long sump tank. The tank has been drilled and we are just waiting for a few more components before getting started.

My rock is being cured and some of my fish have been ordered and are in quarantine.

I have ordered a skimmer but I have heard that I may not need one. I was curious on what some of you guys think of skimmers.

My fish so far...
Dottyback
Grammas
Clownfish
Tang(Powder Blue and Yellow)

I do know that I have to be careful w/the Grammas and was told to get the Gramma first and make sure it's use to frozen food before I get a clean up crew. I also heard that if the Dottyback and Grammas are close in color that could be and issue. Any feedback would be appreciated The more I know the better I feel.

Well I guess that was more then a little. Sorry just excited!!
