Protien skimmer, help needed

Hi,
I am setting up a 180 litre reef tank with a 120 litre sump and was wondering what protein skimmer i should get?
Considering good value for money, the cheaper the better.
Thanks,
Jack

There is no such thing as a good, cheap skimmer. You should look into the well regarded companies, like Reef Octopus or Eshopps as examples. You should not look into ones like Coralife. The cheap ones will give you cheap results.

Thanks for the recomendations, ive had a look at the reef octopus 110, its rated for a 500L tank where mine is 300L including the sump, will this skimmer be okay or should i look for a smaller one?
