Decided to get Octopus HOB Skimmer

After doing a lot of research I have decided to get the Octopus HOB Skimmer since I have read a lot of good things about them. There is a lot of different HOB Skimmer Versions, like BH-300, with or without the Surface Skimmer, BH-100.... I have a 46g Reef tank, which of this Octopus Skimmer is good for my setup???
