Just about every name brand has an in sump model. Sometimes they are actually cheaper than the hob's. Most if not all will sit directly in the sump and just pull the water from the sump. No need to connect anything externally. Just plug and play.
check out google for in-sump protein skimmers and I'm sure you'll find more than you could ever want.

snag yourself a euroreef, these things are just amazing at pulling muck out of the water! The make plug and play models that you can just sit in your sump.
