Needing a skimmer

29 gal bow front reef tank, it has been running for 9 months. I'm looking to add a skimmer, but I'm lost as to what kind. It needs to be HOB. Suggestions??

I have a reef octopus bh-100 on my 55 gallon tank, not sure the difference between the 100 and the 1000, but I love mine.

the 100 is rated for tanks up to 60 gallons and the 1000 for tanks up to 100g, and the 2000 is rated up to 125g

all the posts I have read basically say go big or go home so I got the big boy and I love it on my 75...it's pulling gunk out like a champ

I have the BH-1000 on my 38 gallon reef tank and it is excellent. Pulls out lots of dark green gunk a couple times a week. Nice and quiet, and not bad-looking either. If you have to go HOB, like me, this is an excellent choice.
