protien skimmer on a diy tank any ideas?

About 4 years ago I built a 120 gallon all glass tank 48X24X24 with 2" wide end and center braces and 1.5" front and back braces. I now want to convert it to saltwater. My problem is that I can't figure out how to put a protein skimmer on it.

Any help with brands that will work or ideas would be appreciated.

Thanks, Big Sky

a tank that size, aree you puttingg in a sump? if so, get an in-sump skimmer.
you'd need 2 large HOB skimmers if you were to go hob overe in-sump.
