Skimmers...which one to choose for 90 gallon

I have everything chosen for my 90 Gallon Reef....except for the Skimmer.

So many to choose from....from cheap to outragous prices. My limit is around $250.

I have seen locally the Amiracle and Pro-Clear Venturi...anyone ever use any of these?? They look okay...but are they loud in a house setting? I heard the Pro-Clear was hard to clean. Which size should I get for a 90 Gallon.

Others I am considering are the: ASM G2 (the G3 will NOT fit under my tank) or the Octopus NW-110 Needle-Wheel.

Does anyone else have any recommendations?? Except for lights...this looks to be the most expensive part of my setup...and I would like to make a good decision.

Important aspects of a skimmer to me:
Quiet, Works Well, No Microbubbles!

Thanks!

I got the Aqua Remora C with the Maxi Jet 1200 PH for my 100 gallon. Works pretty well, however i do suggest getting the skimmer box with it.

I went with the coralife 125 super skimmer for my 90....I'm very pleased with it.

The coralife 125 looks like it a little too tall to fit in my sump under the tank....I have heard good things about it...and you can't beat the price!!!

Looking for one a little smaller....

...any suggestions?

Steve
