You may have a hard time getting a good skimmer in that price range. This is close ($170) and a very good skimmer. The next model up (NWB150 @ $195) would be even a better choice.

I have the earlier model reef octopus and absolutely love it. It would be my recommendation, and it's really close to your budget.

What about the octopus BH-100?

I found this skimmer listed between $115 - $119. Is this a decent skimmer?Whats amazing I spend thousands of dollars on equipment and I still have to do water changes?
