I have a Bubble Magus. I like it very much and they are reasonably priced.

People also have good luck with the reef octopus skimmers.

Thanks.
I quite like the look of the ehop,but they don't sell them in the UK,octopus looks ok but it's only a small sump so I'm a bit worried about what will fit in there.I'm picking the tank up after I get back off holiday,so I'm just trying to put together a list of things to buy for setting it up. I've attached a picture of the tank,do people think I need to buy a special make of skimmer or will any in sump do the job?Click image for larger version

Measure the compartment you want the skimmer in and how high the water level will be. Most in sump skimmers have levels they need to be in.
