protein skimmer

Hey all, ran into an problem with my Skimmer choice.

I have a stand, that has a clearance from the bottom of where the sump will sit to the bottom of the tank above of 24-25 inches.

I was looking at the CPR SR4 skimmer but has the footprint height at 24inches, so it wont work.

Now the Kent Nautilus TE Protein Skimmer has a height of 23 inches and needs 24 inches to collect the cup...


Does anyone know of a sump skimmer that can fit under my stand without having to fork over over 200 bucks?

Any thoughts/help is appreciated.

TIA

Reef Devil would be good as well at customaquatics.com. $199.99 +$12.00 shipping. I am looking to get one myself. You can probably get a Euro Reef for $250 and up.
