Reef octopus BH2000 is pretty solid. I think it's around your price range as well

Thanks. Any idea if these are prone to overflow?I was reading up on other skimmers and people were mentioning that there's overflowed numerous gallons on the floor at random times.

I've had mine for a year or so and never had any overflow issues. But i still keep an eye on it just to make sure.
