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.

I assume this question was for Cody, so let me say this. I personally have over 20 years experience in the hobby and maintained a fish room at home of over 40 aquariums; 14 marine. The level of advice that I have seen from Cody on this forum has been outstanding. I have spent time on dozens of internet forums over the years and have made a home here, largely due to the honest and accurate discussions that take place, of which Cody is a large contributor. He is qualified based on the accuracy of his advice.

As to this thread....
Be sure to keep fish which can survive long term in your size aquarium. I really like the options Cody lists above. 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.
