Please help me in finding a new in sump protein skimmer

I just upgraded from my 27G to a 80G reef tank and my 27G is now working as a sump. I still use my seaclone skimmer but i want to upgrade due to constant need of adjustment and bubbles in my tank. Do you guys recommend a in sump skimmer?

AquaC Urchin Pro. Same thing as the Remora Pro, with the outlet on the side as opposed to the top (and no lip for hanging)

What kind of corals? SPS softies or LPS. That will make a difference in the light you get.

If you want SPS than Metal Halide is the only way to go to do it right. I would do 2 250 watt MH supplemented with actinics either PC or VHO. You could also do a retro kit if you had a hood or canopy to bolt them into. Take alook at the Hamilton hoods on my site and that will give you a good i dea of whats availible and if it is within your budget.
