Good to hear! The protein skimmer came today. The Marco rocks and sand are on the way as are the powerheads and pump for the sump. I will be picking up the tank this weekend as well as the materials for the sump and I will start a build thread. Still on the list is a full test kit, salt mix, and the buffering mixes. Thanks for all the help so far!

Got the powerheads and the sand in the mail today and all seems well. The rock should be here tomorrow. Unfortunately the skimmer that I received yesterday is broken. One of the tubes in the chamber is broken so I am returning it for a replacement. Almost time to start the build!

I picked up the tank for the sump this afternoon. I attached a few pictures of everything I got so far. I also got news from the company that sold me the skimmer and they are sending me a replacement for the broken part. I will probably start the sump build this weekend and pick up the display tank too.

Is that a Berlin Skimmer? I have the Classic model of that, and think it does a good job (I think I need a bigger pump for it, but I still get skimmate...)

Is that the Venturi or Turbo model?

Its the Venturi model. Here is the link below.

Any suggestions on lighting fixtures? It will be a 75 gallon with a 29 gallon sump (with the skimmer and a refugium) and FOWLR.

Midas Blenny (Ecsenius midas)
Canary blenny (Meiacanthus atrodorsalis)
Scissortail gobies (Ptereleotris evides)
Longnose hawkfish (Oxycirrhites typus)
Firefish (Nemateleotris magnifica)
Pair of Green Chromis (Chromis viridis)
Chalk bass (Serranus tortugarum)
Royal Gramma Basslet (Gramma loreto)
Longfin Fairy Wrasse (Cirrhilabrus rubriventralis)
Flame Angelfish (Centopyge loricula)

No plans for any in the next few years. If i decide to do coral I think I will most likely start a second tank for them. I want to keep this one to only the fish and LR.

Then I suggest any Power Compact that would fit the dimensions of your tank. A single 50/50 (Actinic/Daytime) fixture would be perfect. Maybe the Coralife Aqualight, or something of its type. There are a lot of nice PC fixtures with moonlights and timers and all the bells and whistles. I would probably try the AquaticLife PC if I were going your route. I am impressed with this company's product's so far.
