Protein skimmer suggestions

Hello,

I am in the process of putting together a 90 gallon reef tank that is going to be housing LPS and SPS corals along with fish. I am looking at 3 different protein skimmers but do not know which one to get: Reef Octopus NWB 150, AquaMaxx ConeS 1 or Eshopps. Since I am putting this setup together and need all the equipment --- light, sump, pump et cetera, I am trying to get good equipment but not overspend at the same time.

Thanks for any suggestions

Scratch the aquamaxx. With the amount of air draw I wouldn't imagine it would do very well.
The octo is a bit better, and I don't know which eshoppes you are considering, but you might want to have a look at this one-
