Suggestions for in-sump protein skimmer

Any recommendations for an in-sump protein skimmer?

Also I am curious: If the protein skimmer is going to be in the sump, why do I need a pump that comes along with it?

It seems like most people here suggest the AquaC EV series. They're expensive but everyone says you get what you pay for with protein skimmers. I think there's also an AquaC earlier in sump model called the Urchin that's supposed to be comparable to their Remora hang on back skimmer. Some have also said that the Corallife Super Skimmer is a very good skimmer for the money. I think it works as either a hang on or in sump...

To move water and air through it, silly...

The ASM - G2 Protein Skimmer is also a great skimmer for in sump applications.

I would agree the ASM series is a great skimmer. I am pretty happy with my Reef Devil Deluxe model. What I like about it is it comes with a fitting built on the cup with tubing that dumps into a 1 gallon milk carton, so I don't have to empty it out as frequently. Makes things easy when you have to travel.
