What were you thinking of spending? There is no sufficient skimmer for a 230 gallon tank that will fit in the sump you currently have.

Skimmers are one of those pieces of saltwater equipment were you generally get what you pay for. Buy too cheap and it ends up not doing the job. You end up replacing it with the one you should of bought in the first place and end up increasing your cost further. I use an aqua max EM300 on my 220g tank that goes for about $350 and which I believe is the brand of Marine Depot. Does a good job without being as expensive.

I ended up buying a coralife that was the only option I had that would fit and was rated for 220g -300g
