I would add about 15 more pounds of live rock and ditch the HOB filter. With live rock you won't really need the filter since the rock itself becomes your biological filtration media. In the long run this saves you lots time on filter cleaning and lots o money on replacing filter media.

If you do regular water changes, don't overstock the tank, and don't overfeed the livestock you won't need the purigen or phosphate reduction media at all. Again, for me it comes down to money. By doing water changes, feeding right and not overstocking I can avoid having to use and pay for phosphate reduction stuff.

I would get a couple of koralia pumps for the tank to up the circulation. I have two knano's on a pulse duo wavemaker in my 29 gallon.
