having trouble choosing

I am having trouble choosing between the following skimmers and it has been difficult getting some advice/reviews from the forum. I'm starting a 33-75g tank(haven't decided). Which of the following would members rate as the best and worst?
1. Aqua C Remora
2. Bak-Pak
3. Prizm
4. Via Aqua Multi Skimmer
5. Corallife Super Skimmer Needle Wheel

I have heard good things about the Aqua C Remora. A few ppl i talk to on here have told me it would work well for my 65gal. I have also heard good things about the coralife super skimmer. But on some reviews i read some ppl had trouble with it over flowing because they didnt change the settings. I havent heard anything about the other ones you listed.

I am a newbie and do not have a skimmer yet but im in between the two i just talked about. I think the aqua will do a surface skim?????? im not sure though.
The Coralife is a good skimmer from what i hear for the price. Hope this helped you out some Feel free to correct me if im wrong guys

I have been advised and read a review that the Corallife supper skimmer is the best bang for your buck as a low cost skimmer. This is the one I have chose to go with.

Good Luck,
Brian
