HOB Protein Skimmer

Looking to go saltwater for the first time on my 45g long tank. Will probably be a FOWLR till it gets well established and I chose to maybe make it a reef tank later on. I'm in the market for a HOB protein skimmer as I am not planning a sump/fuge as of right now, everything may expand later as I'm sure you all have fell into haha. Curious as to which ones I should look into or even how to set it up. I've tried looking around in the internet for it with no luck. Not sure if it's my lack of google skills or not much is out there. Anyways, much thanks.
-Jake

Jake, there are a couple half decent HOB skimmers, but they all seem to put some micro bubbles in the tank. I am not a fan of HOB skimmers. That said Reef Octopus skimmers are generally pretty good, and they make HOB models. I would choose something like this-
Reef Octopus BH1000 Hang-on-the-Back Protein Skimmer - Bulk Reef Supply
