The Mini 160 would be the skimmer I would suggest. These skimmers are under rated. As such, you need to base the sizing on the display and not the total volume. The display is where the load is and our sumps and refugiums remove waste and don't add to them. Even with the added volume from your sump, the Mini 180 is really still to large for your system.

Mini 160 is great! I had a Mini 180 on my 180 Gallon and it did fine. BK's are underrated for sure!!
