If you learn and want to implement a sump, then you can get a skimmer that does not hang on your display tank. HOB skimmers are not as effective as sump skimmers.

I would do a sump but my tank it on my kitchen counter top in a cutout in my wall, nowhere to store a sump. Unless I move my tank. But I bet that would be a pain to do

So HOB skimmers are your only choice right now.. I like reef octopus. I hope you can fit a skimmer in your wall. They are pretty bulky and loud.
