Just to be clear, the true REEf set up should be with Sump and skimmer, no canister filtration nor HoB filters. For your case, I think any type of filtration would work, just need to make sure you are on top of the mant.
main issue for these type of set up is the air exchange. becuase of the limitation on water surfaces, you will have much less air exchange for the tank which lead to less oxygen in the water. You will need to find a different way to replace that wil your set up if you not running some kind of sump.

In the videos for the Protien skimmers, there seems to be significant aeration going on, does that not return to the tank?

are you talking about the bubble inside the skimmer? it technicaly use those bubble to push the waste to the top of collection cup. That's how all skimmer works. It will be going back into the tank, but most of the rate is slow overall. Also I usually will get a skimmer twice or even 3 times of the load. Let's say if your tank is 30g, you should look for a skimmer that is rated at least 100g.

Ah okay thanks. I'm still debating this.

I may just pick up a Cadlights 50g complete setup but it's a bit bigger than I'm looking for.

I'd really prefer a rectangular long aquarium but I'm having a hell of a time finding a stand for the ADA 75-P.
