Everyone here wants to make sure you do everything right, and have as little error as possible to make your experience more enjoyable. I, myself, am passing on this information as specific as I am because I know the personal experences of others who get similar setups, who eventually need to replace everything because that equipment cannot support corals or saltwater.

If you do go the direction of a Centropyge angel, be sure to only keep 1 species in your aquarium size, and you may want to add this fish last because they can become territorial. I personally have a Coral Beauty in my reef, and have yet to have problems with it nipping.
I also want to throw in my 2 cents on a piece of equipment you do not list. I would spend $80-$100 on the internet and purchase a UV Sterilizer. My personal success rate with marine systems that run UV's is considerably higher than on my systems that have not. I will never set up another marine without a UV. That being said, if you dose Iodine for your softies, some formula's are not UV compatable. ( It will say so on the bottle. )
UV's are fabulous at preventing outbreaks of ich and preventing disease from spreading, in my at home experience.
