protien skimmer for reef tank

what brand and type would you guys recommend for a 55 gal reef tank with about 70 pounds of LR. I have heard a lot about seaclone both good and bad... any one got one they are in love with that is affordable and reliable that you would recommend?

I use the AquaC remora pro on my 55. It's a bit pricier than some but it's worth it IMO. I use seaclones on my smaller tanks and they do ok, but I want something with a bit more heart for my reef. The AquaC is extremely simple to use. You hang it on the tank and plug it in. No tweaking necessary. It's quiet as well so that's a plus.

I have the standard remora on my 46G and wish I opted for the PRO.

I like my Corallife Super Skimmer (Needle). Cheap and efficient. The model rated for 125G would be good for ur tank.

I haven't had any issues with my remora. (not the pro). I've made a small adjustment however because I wasn't getting exactly what I wanted. Now it's good.

I empty it once a week. I don't have a huge bioload, and feed every 2 days so it doesn't produce excessive skimmate.
