It would depend on the total volume of your system , tank and sump and even eventual stocking levels (up a size if a higher stock level than average) , yes you could also buy a used skimmer , you may be able to pick up a higher end skimmer second hand for the same / similar price as a cheaper skimmer new .

Thank you for the information. What model should I look at for the skimmer? Do they vary depending on size of tank? Can I buy used or does it have to be new?

The Bubble Magus skimmers are a good starting point on a budget as well as  jebao pumps for your return . Lighting will depend on whether you plan corals in the future . With the lighting being the most expensive part aim to buy once as opposed to upgrading later .

Hi everyone I’ve just purchased a 6ft by 2ft tank pre drilled with a 4ft sump.
Now I’m stuck!!!!
I wanted to start to keep a few fish & live rock. I know I need a few bits n pieces
Like a skimmer heater lights pump etc.
I’m trying to keep costs down initially any advice would be appreciated. I’ve looked into skimmers but they vary in price. Please help
