Next step to new tank and Skimmer Question

OK, thanks for all ya'lls input for the few ? I have had... Made choices based on them.

Now.... the next step...

I have the Tank and the Canister filter (see signature, I will put what I buy there)


I am setting up FOWLR

Eventually I will buy some cool looking coral (very little though) and want a Seahorse and other bright fish.

I see so many choices... in ALL kinds of price ranges... I want to stick to around 100.00 for the lights

Best choice?


I do not want anything to be hanging from my tank due to space and looks. But I do not have a sump.. (Still learning about sumps)

I would like to stay around 100.00 for this as well.

(I buy online ALOT so I am very good at finding deals (if I know what I am looking for) IE. My canister sells for 150.00 in stores I paid 59.99 (I am cheap what can I say)

Thanks again for any input

100 is a tight budget for a skimmer for a 75 gallon IMO...
the CSS (Coralife Super Skimmer) 125 would be the best bang for the buck (and it converts from HOB to sump style so you would be covered there)
bigalsonine had the best price the last time I looked..
its not too far over your budget btw.

you can get away with right about anything for lights for now.. (ie no coarl)
NO would do if you wouldnt mind it.. you can get 03 bulbs for looks as well..
