Octopus skimmers come very highly rated and arent $500 for the regular ones. check out this. Has most models and even has the footprint of it so you can be sure it fits.

Protein Skimmer, Protein Skimmers, Aquarium Marine Reef Foam Fractionators

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

Awesome I just ordered the rodi filter. And I think I decided on the reef octopus 6" skimmer. Now I just need to decide what I wanna do for rock. Any recommendations? I was most gonna go with dry rock of some sort then seed with live rock?

I have pics of it on my profile, when I 1st got it till now. I love it. Awesome color, porous, and plenty of places for fish, inverts to hide and move around. Plus easy to put frags on. It's more rock for ur buck too.

You can;t beat reefcleaners rock for quality or price. My highest recommendation

You can start without it, it will take a few weeks to break in anyways.
