Skimmers

Hello everyone!
I need some help with deciding on a hang on tank skimmer. I have a 65 gallon FOWLR setup and I currently have a proaquatics skimmer in the sump I want to replace. I am looking for low profile and good performance. I would alos like to stay in the $200 range if i can.
Thanks for any input you may have!
Jim

I would try the Dual CPR

The Bak-Pak 2 Protien Skimmer & Bio-Filter

or

Reef Octopus BH 100SS Hang on Back Protein Skimmer - AquaCave

Both are great skimmers to use IMO....
