I would go with this one-
Bubble Magus NAC 9 Meshwheel Cone Protein Skimmer Bubble Magus NAC 9 Meshwheel Cone Protein Skimmer
What makes skimmers efficient foremost is air draw. this skimmer will kick buttocks.
I have the generation 1(same skimmer, less the gate valve) NWB200 on my system now, along with a bubble magus cone, and the cone needs to be emptied a lot more often.

Tank size it fits are big which means it would rock in a 150gl! The height is (an issue with the other I was looking at) almost 6" shorter!!!! Same price range!! This is a simple decision!! Wow thank you sooo much..... And I'll thank you when I have an awesome tank lol

When you assemble it, make sure the bottom screws are very tight. If not, water will leak in/out of that seal at the bottom and you won't be able to adjust it properly and you will be freaking out wondering why.
