The aqua C is a smaller skimmer for that size tank. I have the aqua C pro and it's not noisy at all. I'd skip the prism. I've never heard anything but negative info on them. Don't know about the skilter. The cpr bak-pak is a nice skimmer as well.

Nope. But I haven't shopped for a skimmer in years so hopefully someone else will be along that can give you an opinion on it.

Don't get skilter! They are rubbish (loud and releaseds TONS of microbubbles into ur tank) unless u do some mods to them. The mods require additional purchases of course lol
