What is a good HOB skimmer for a 55?

The aquatop skimmer with uv sterilizer that I was planning on getting is not available anymore from my dealer. What is the best value for HOB skimmer?

It is!

I've only had mine running a few weeks but love it so far. It definitely pulls out junk from the water column and started doing so quickly. Gosh, does that stuff stink!

Also, I thought it was easy to assemble. I was able to do it and I don't ever mess with stuff like that lol.
