Red face little update and one question!

Well, I started my cycle with the raw shrimp last week, and have been testing the water, My Ammonia is coming down a little, even though I think is a little too fast, Already installed the lights (CoralLife 192 watt), installed the two powerheads (Koralia 2 and Penguin 550), added LR (20lb Fiji) and installed the moon lights LED's.

Now Im thinking about buying the skimmer. I was looking at two Skimmers, I would like any feedback on both if you have any experience with either both.

1st Skimmer?

2nd Skimmer?

I`ve never used either but they say Octopus brand is top of the line. At least that`s what I`ve heard others say.
