Converting 55 gallon to marine reef

I plan to convert one of our 55 gallon tanks from freshwater to maring reef. My plans include a lighting upgrade to a 260watt coralife deluxe series unit, an appropriately sized wet/dry filter with sump and in-sump skimmer. amongst other things. As I have already found susbstantial saving on internet over LFS for the lighting unit, I was wondering if anyone could point me to good online retailers for other equipment such as the sump, skimmer, and other misc needs.

Take pride in what you do, for it is a reflection of who you are.

if you tell your LFS that you are setting up a new tank, they may offer a % discount if you buy all of your stuff thru them. Thats what I did and ended up getting 15% off an entire setup. If not then try

90gal: 2x Tangerine Discus, 2x Clown Pleco, 2x Catfish.
75gal + 10gal sump: 2x Large Goldfish, 1x Common Pleco, 14x Leopard Danios
55gal: 5x Angelfish, 1x Common Pleco, 8x SIlver Tip Tetras, 16x Neon Tetras, 8x Albino Corys
