New Skimmer

I am planning on getting a new in sump skimmer for my 75 reef tank. The sump is a 20 gal high tank (L=24" W=12" H= 16"). It cannot be anymore than 22" tall. I willing to spend around the $250 range. Any suggestions?

Thanks,
Keith

Thanks. I've looked at pictures of other peoples set ups and one of the most popular brands seems to be Bubble Magnus. Is there any difference between a typical (tube) skimmer vs, a cone skimmer?

I also like octopus skimmers, but the one i would recommend for your system is too tall.
They say the cone is more efficient, but i never saw any data to back that up. It would be extremely hard to do a study like that.
