Hmmm, getting kinda tense in this thread 8O When and if, Goby decides to get an anemone, I hope he (she??) will post for advice, at that point I'm sure I or others will jump on the soap box, yet still provide the care info that was asked for.
As for your choices, if you are going to have LR
(1-1.5 lbs per gallon) and LS
, then the biowheel isn't necessary. For the money, you can buy a couple of power heads and put some towards the skimmer. For the money, there aren't many choices for HOB
skimmers for that size tank. On my 20, I use a HOB
Sealife systems skimmer, and it does a fair job, fills the cup about once per week. I have heard good things about prism skimmers, I have heard there are mods that will make the seaclone a fair skimmer (although I think the prism still is better even if the seaclone is modified). If you have the money to spend, you really should look into the remora hang on skimmer by AquaC, it is supposed to be the best in it's class, but when you look for the best, you must be prepared to pay for the best, it is priced significantly higher than the other three mentioned.
