Need more info please - reef system or fish only? If reef, softie, LPS, or SPS? High, med, or low fish load? internal or external mounting? How much money do you have? What kind of space do you have?I feel the best (& most expensive) skimmers are Deltec, Bubble King, or Reeflo Orca, but most of these are for larger systems. Other good ones would be Tunze, Octopus, Euro-Reef, & Presion Marine (there are plenty more, those are just the ones that come to mind). Overall though, look for a skimmer that is rated to about 180-200 gallons. You could look online at Premium Aquatics for skimmers, thats were I get all my equipment from, and they have great costumer service, so feel free to call them. Sorry I couldn't be more of a help.
