I use the excalibur brand but from what I have heard the octopus brand is the best. It will be the next skimmer I get.

I have the reef octopus 8. It's an in sump setup. It's a little bit large but Wow it works great. It took about a week to get it broken in and adjusted. It makes some really nasty dark green goop. Well worth the money.
