There's a skimmer on eBay someone recommended to me, it's called " sca protein skimmer" runs about 130.$ I read a thread on them on 3reef. You might want to check them out. I have not used them myself but did look into them. Look into it. The thread says they work as well as the bubble Magnus for half the price

Vortex skimmers. I have a in-250 on my tank and love it! Yes it's rather large and required additional fabricating to fit it, but it's amazing. Also I'm sure Vortex has smaller ones

When I asked the same question a few months back, I was told anything Reef Octopus was the best.. I ended up getting a Reef Octopus Hang on the Back BH-1000. It's been working well for 4 months now.
