What should i do now?

So i am making a good deal of money this summer and im not sure what i should get first for my tank. I can continue to stock it wth coral and get another fish, or i can get a protein skimmer, or i can get a metal halide setup. So what do you guys think? i, I can get a metal hilide light so i can keep some sweet sps or a skimmer so my water will be clearer?
What would you do?

I'd get a protein skimmer first. It gives you a lot more leeway for mistakes. Forget a water change, something die, etc.. it will really help. Nice lighting won't help that any.

protein skimmer it is. :D I think im going to save up and buy a brand new aqua c remora skimmer with a skimmer box. For 200 dallors thats the best i can do rite? What about a used deltec 300? do they go for 200? Ive never seen a used one before.
How about this?
