hob skimmers

I have a reaction cannister filter and was wondering what kind of skimmer to get. My tank is 110 gal. I like the idea of the HOB because I already have the space in the back and don't want to bother with a sump and more equip underneath. Also are airstones a good idea.

Welcome to AA!

Octopus has some nice HOB skimmers. Either of these would be a good choice.
Reef Octopus BH 300F Dual Hang-on-Back Protein Skimmer with Filter System* - AquaCave
Reef Octopus BH 800S Hang on Back Protein Skimmer with Sicce Pump by CoralVue - AquaCave
Also are airstones a good idea.
No, there are not needed and not recommended.
