I have used the aqua c remora pro. Pretty simple design and very easy to clean the cup which gets nasty from all the junk it pulls out.

Reef Octopus BH2000 might be good for you. I've heard they are good skimmers. I have a 42 gallon and just ordered the BH1000. It should be arriving on Tuesday

That's going to be tough. Maybe the BH2000, or the Super Reef Octopus LX2000s. I would go with the latter.

I have the Reef Octopus BH1000 and I love it, but BRS rates it at most effective at 75 gallons. The BH2000 is rated at 100 gallons. Its super easy to use, clean, and I've had nothing but great experience with mine. I would recommend it in a heart beat!

I have a 90 gallon reef w bh2000 hob skimmer. It's awesome. Watch online videos for assembly instructions as the ones that come in box aren't great. Getting it going requires some trial and error but once you get it running let it go. It will take a few days for it to find sweetspot but once it does it rocks!

I have a coralife 125 and am really happy with it. Found the best deal on amazon.
