A quality skimmer will assist with things going on in your system. But please keep in mind that the advice previously given about all the tangs is still accurate. When you do decide to swap them out, which they grow fast when healthy, I'd suggest looking at different fish that are available to you to avoid such large fish's aggression and load on the nitrate cycle.

Those things are total garbage and won't help anything.

Reef Octopus BH2000 Hang-on-the-Back Protein Skimmer - Bulk Reef Supply

This guy is rated for a tank your size. Though they say the seaclone is rated up to 150, I couldn't even get it to effectively skim off of a 36...they are just overall junk. I'm sure others will chime in with other options as well.
