I would go with the octo. That bubble blaster pump pulls a ton of air. Over twice the BM.

It depends on which model. Just keep in mind that manufacturers tend to exaggerate the efficiency of their products. Most folks have adopted a general rule that you should purchase a skimmer rated for 1.5 to 2 times your total system volume. In other words, 90 gallon with 30 gallon sump=120 gallons so the skimmer should be rated for 180-240 gallons or more.
