Skimmer 80gal help

Hi I am starting up a 80gal saltwater reef and fish tank.
I have a Marine land sump tank and it only takes marine land skimmer. They only offer two a 100gal and a 300gal skimmer. I have a 80 gal reef and fish overstock. Can I use a 300 gal skimmer or will it be a over kill?
Thank you for your help if you need more info I'll respond ASAP!

Could you post a picture of the sump? Seems odd that you couldnt use a different make skimmer. AS long as you have the space I dont see why you couldnt.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

You should be bale to put any skimmer in that center compartment. Just measure it and then see which will fit. I'm guessing there is a spot for "their" skimmer but you dont have to utilize it.
