The G4X had the Sedra 9000 on it. I believe' it's been renamed the G4+, and yes, that's the MSX skimmer next to it. Hmm..now that I'm looking at the old pic, I guess I bought the one with 2 sicce pumps....I could have sworn it was three. Oh well, it was the MSX 300.
If your skimmer is 24" tall, you probably have the G4.

Skip that skimmer. It's worthless IME. I wouldn't put that on a 30 gallon tank (again).

There are so many skimmers that will work on your tank, and that's not one of them. You can put the worst skimmer in the world on a tank and it will pull some skimmate, but that doesn't mean it's the right match. Poor design and crappy pump IME. Not worth your time. You'll be buying twice if you get that one.

possibly this one-
Bubble Magus Curve In Sump Needle Wheel Protein Skimmer w/ Bubble Plate
(the curve 7 if it didn't link....though I'd rather the BM NAC8 because the air draw is considerably more)
Bubble Magus NAC series Protein Skimmer
