Best 65G HOB Protein Skimmer????

I have a 65G tank (36L X 24H X 18D) and am looking for a really good hang on back protein skimmer. Reef Octopus BH800sbs, hydor slim skim, aqua c remora pro? I know of these but are there any suggestions for anything else? Top of the line? Obviously keeping noise and bubbles down would be key. Money isnt an issue. Thanks.

I may be biased but I loved my remora skimmer. lol I would probably go with the octopus one though, really great reviews and a solid product. You also probably want to go with a skimmer rated for MORE than your tank volume.

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