you could go fish only for not alot more money than a tropical tank (ok scaled up a bit as u need a larger tank) as the lighting and rock aren't a necessity
i'd advise a skimmer as they are the best bit of kit IMHO that u can get, if its a good one, then u can go for a sump (best) external filter (not bad) or live rock or a few other types of filtration
the thing about nitrates being bad for fish and corals isnt exactly true, levels of 30ppm (30mg/l) are safe for both fish and corals, it just feeds algae beyond belief
