New skimmer

I am in the market for a skimmer, i'm not sure if i am going to be using a sump or not, could someone recomend a good skimmer for a sump, and one that hangs on the back of my tank in case i go that route. Price is an issue, and i'd like to stay $200 cdn or below. Thanks in advance.

I use the AquaC Remora and have had no problems with it. It hangs on the back of the tank. You can get the Aqua C Pro with Mag Drive 3 (It's for 75+ aquariums..) for $227 AND free shipping on ebay:

Since you said you are in the market for something below $200, you could try to get away with the Aqua C, but for $27 more I would just go for the Pro. Good luck with finding a skimmer!
