    good choice on the skimmer, the sump will work, make sure sump and skimmer will all match up before buying. lighting system is ok if the water collum is no deeper than 18" otherwise metal halide if you want to keep sps corals and some of the more light loving specimens. if you go with the t-5 see if you can get the atinic o3 instead of the blue. the blue is 460 nm and the atinic o3 is 420 nm. good luck nice start.
