Anyone have recommendations, looking for a good skimmer, lighting and submersible pump? Have heard octopus skimmers are good but so many brand to pick from.

On my old 55 gallon tank my Euro reef RS 80 rocked best skimmer I have owned. The new model is called a Reef Dynamics INS80 same company different name.
Another choice is the Aqua Maxx EM100.
Return pump eheim are great I would get a 1260 a little pricey but they last 20 years. Or go with a Sicce Syncra line.
Lighting depends on what you want to keep, how much you want to spend,

Your welcome What is the dimension of the leemar tank?

The dimensions are 24x24x20. I am waiting on the tank. I purchased the rimless tank with three sides Starphire. Just shopping around for the rest of the equipment.

Since it is a cube you can use about any kind of lighting and will not be to expensive, leds can be really expensive when you have a long tank.

You could put a single led fixture, Reef Breeder, Eco tech Pro, AI Vega, a six bulb ATI 24'' fixture, for example WHAT is your budget?
