Equipment for a 20 Gallon?

My parents are getting me the equipment for a saltwater aquarium for Christmas. I already have a 20 gallon tall aquarium, I decied to save them a LITTLE money to just use it. I'm wanting a HOB filter, because I'm using a tallboy chest to set it on, I have nowhere to store a canister or sump. Though really I'm having a hard time figuring out what brand of filter is best. I've heard there are filters with a protein skimmer built in, are these a good idea or no? Also the lighting, I'd like to keep some corals, but I wont be heartbroken if the price range of the lighting makes that out of the question.
Really I'm looking for specific suggestions that you've had good experiences with.
