Protein skimmer

Hi every one
My tanks been running for 9 weeks now 😎😎😎😎
But I've decided I don't like the look of my internal skimmer (juwel 3.0) so I'm looking for 1 that's hangs on the back of my tank ,
As any one got advice on a good 1
I have a 60 gallon tank so need a decent size skimmer but don't know where r what type r best
Any advice is welcome

You have the skimmer in your main tank? I've actually never seen that. My impression was one would have either had it in the sump or had a HOB on the main.

From my understanding HOB skimmers are not as efficient as in-sump skimmers.
