I like the look of the sand better than the look of the crushed coral it looks easier to clean also.

My friend did say I should just toss the Protein skimmer but it would be a good start out one. He grabbed it on clearance so he said as a beginner its good for now.

I really wish I had the space for a wet dry system it looks so much easier and alot less junk on my tank!
Can I use a regular filter for salt? some stuff I have been reading say if I have enough live rock I dont even need a filter? Does this work and or is it easy? the less crap I have hanging on the tank would be nice.

Any suggestions on the brand of salt to use when mixing my water? there are about a million different brands >_<

A wet dry filter would be a disaster. You want to avoid any and all filters that intentionally break down ammonia and nitrite with an end result of Nitrate. Take a minute to read this thread:

You are correct in your observations about live rock. Essentially, when you use a skimmer and live rock, you do not need a "Filter" in the traditional sense.
