Question Protien Skimmer

Hi guys Im new here! I have a 55g saltwater set up at home. I am now looking into a protien skimmer and not sure what to get. I found a Red Sea Prizm Deluxe Protein Skimmer and used Bak-Pak 2 Dual skimmer ($120). Which of the two are better and if neither what do you recommend? I want something thats quite because the tank is right next to my bed.
Thanks Guys!

There's another thread made just like this one lol.

The bak-paks are not bad choices. But i would skip one of those, and go with a Reef Octopus. They are great skimmers. Are you looking for a HOB skimmer or do you have a sump to put the skimmer in? Even if you have a sump, i would still say go with a reef octopus. They are amazing skimmers IMO. I have a HOB Reef Octopus and it works amazingly, and is running strong. Would not have wanted any other type of skimmer. My suggestion lies with the Reef Octopus. Plus, they are fairly cheap.
