There are a lot of variables but I would say that first off you might want to decide what direction you are wanting to take the tank as this can determine the proper equipment to get in the beginning. Full blown reef tank,fish and inverts, or a fish only with live rock tank? You will want a really good skimmer and adequate circulation\flow. Do not skimp on the equipment or you will have a difficult time keeping the water clean. Alsoo take things slow as going too fast will inevitably lead to a bad experience\time.

All sorts of skimmers out there that can accommodate. Do you have a sump ? in sump skimmers are generally more efficient.Is there a price range?

but as I said before you should look around and do a little research.

Join a local reef club/forum. Im on boston reefers (new england). That is where i got all my live rock. Just get it from people that are taking down tanks. It will be a lot cheaper. This is me and my dads 110 mixed reef. We built the stand. Just showing you it for an idea on aquascaping. I can get better pics tomorrow if you would like.
