Haha my birthday is on the 4th july its like 3 days away. Wll this is an old post but i will still reply. I have herd great things about the coral life skimmer so that should be ok (we dont get them in england) As for the light for anemones and lots of corals your best bet would be getting metal haliades, you can buy the fixture and bulb on ebay for very cheap it worked out about £30 per lamp each covering about 2 foot.
