Skimmer for new tank?

What skimmer would you suggest for a new 140 gallon FOWLR tank? For a reasonable price. Can't afford much. This will be my third tank. Lol.

Reef octopus NW 200. I have one on y 150 and it works great. They're $280 and they're huge and amazing. Lol. Just make sure it fits in your stand.

Thanks. I was looking at those earlier but didn't know if they were worth the money.

I saw that one online. Is the 160 enough for a 140 gallon tank?

Vertex skimmer. 219.00 w/ free shipping. I have the 250 version and its an absolute monster. The power and skimming capabilities are insane. Also built very well

I'll take a look at those. Heard they were pretty good. Still curing the rock for the 140. Have plenty of time to choose. Thanks for the info.

I have a FOWLR 93 gallon cube with a 5-6 in koran angel and a 30 in snowflake, trigger, foxface, and 4 damsels.....It is alot bigger than the the marineland but seems to work better and the reviews were great!
PS bought mine on ebay!!!
