25 Gallon - What HOB skimmer?

I'm planning on setting up a 25 gallon with about 25 lbs of live rock. What HOB skimmer would you recommend?

Ask your local pet store. If they recommend the most expensive thing, don't get it. They are just ripping you off. Get something that specifically fits YOUR tank

I don't know what fits my tank, though. Should I get something rated higher? Like for 50 or 60?

The Reef Octopus BH-90 is pretty nice.

I'm up and running. Decided to go with a 10 gallon sump/refugium so I have an Eshopps nano skimmer down below. Anxious to see this thing cycle and get some life in the tank.

How did you do your overflow? Did you drill or go with a HOB overflow box?

HOB. I was afraid of breaking the tank. Works well, but a bit loud.
