Personally I think the Sea Clone 100 and 150 are highly under rated protien skimmers that are very affordable. Anything above 50 gallons though is too much for the sea clone.

The ASM is a EuroReef knock off/split off and at 1/2 the price you can't beat it. The ASM G3 is on my wish list for my 120.

Lets hold off on answering Jay until he provides us with the size of his tank. For all we know it's a 1,000 gallons, and a whole battalion of seaclone's couldn't keep up
