FYI, Canister filters can become nitrate factories in saltwater tanks and can be a real pain to keep properly cleaned out. I would recommend getting a Fluval HOB 50 or 70 filter and after the tank is cycled running a Chemipure Elite bag in it. As for HOB skimmer the Reef Octopus Classic 100 would work as would the Eshoppes PSK-75H. It seems you have the same Aqueon 36 gallon bowfront that I started out with and I ran a Fluval 50 and an Eshoppes PSK-75H on it. Here is a vid of the tank with the equipment in action:
