Whats the best skimmer...powerheads/wave makers good or bad?

Im looking for a skimmer that will hang on the back of my tank. There are so many kinds that I decided to come to you guys for assistance. I heard that the aquaC Remora are a good brand and so are CPR Cyclone-bakpak series. But im ultimatly looking a skimmer that will do a) an excellent job b) is efficent and c) will do at least 5 times the amount of my tank (75 gallons). So if anyone could recomend me an excellent skimmer that would be great

Also does anyone know of a good power head to use I was thinking of using two aquaclear 110 powerheads situated at each end of the tank hooked up to a timer but I would rather use a couple of wave makers. good idea or bad make any modifications as you see fit!

Thanks a million in advance!

I was also looking at the Burlin turbo hang on... is this one any good. Sorry for all the skimmer questions its just I have only read. I just dont want to by a crappy skimmer and then have wasted all that money. I heard that ventri are the best type of skimmer but so far I think the best one I have seen is the Berlin one.
