I would suggest an Aqua-c Remora Pro skimmer. They work good and don't use a large pump. Not to mention they gdont put off a lot of microbubbles back into the tank.

id kinda like one to go down in my sump. mine is there now and I'm having a stand custom built right now so I can put my refugium and finally have all my equipment fit.

Thats where I keep mine, it is on my nano tank hanging off the side of my refugium. It works great for only having a 10 gallon refugium, doesn't take up much room.

If you want one that will fit inside the sump I would recommend the Asm G-1 or G-1x, these are excellent skimmers at a good price.

Here is a link for the specs on them.....http://www.marinedepot.com/ps_searchItem~category~Saltwater_Aquarium_Supplies_Protein_Skimmers_In_Sump_Venturi_100_250_Gallons~IdCategory~FIPSISVSHT.html

you should try:

drfostersmith.com

You can get great prices on just about anything and everything on that website. I'd say group buys are almost encouraged as well. So get a few people together and get the best deals there.

Oh, I use a superskimmer (Coralife) but it's modified to skim more aggressively. My only peave is that it skims TOO aggressively and I end up supplementing my tank w/ Mg, Sr and Molyb. No big deal.
