protein skimmer

Currently running a seaclone on my 75 and to me, based on posts I have read here relating to how often everyone seems to have to empty the cup on their skimmers, this thing is a piece of junk. I hardly ever have to empty mine. I am pretty sure I have the adjustments right after watching a few videos on youtube about them but it just doesn't make much skimmate. I am looking to get a new one but I need one that is a HOB, or one that will fit inside the cabinet. I do not have a sump and have no room for one. If I remove the shelf inside the cabinet, it is 25" from top to bottom. Could anyone give me a suggestion as to what to do? I am tired of my water not being clear enough....I change 15 gallons of the water every Sunday and my parameters are fine, but it just isn't clear enough for me and I have a feeling it's gonna get worse before it gets better since I am dosing with Melafix and Pimafix right now (skimmer is off) to help my Copperband out. in advance for any suggestions

I use a Corallife 125 on my 90, and have had no probs. it is a hang on, it set up easy, and "broke in" quick, and keeps it crystal clear. I did a little research before I bought one and found not many people had good things about the Cyclone.
