I second the Reef Octo! Take a look at the BH100 rated at up to 250L but I would recommend the BH300 rated at 500L if your budget could stretch that far!

Haven't come across this brand, but it looks like it has some merit :)

Haqos Skimmer

Comes with needle wheel pump. R800
Haven't heard of these, it does look a bit promising, dunno, take a chance maybe. Personally I would go with one of the known brands that have been tried and tested and work.

Hey Keyaam, i'm using the red sea, not even the pro, and works like a charm! u wont be dissapointed.
I ran it as a hangon intially, but when i got my sump, i moved it into the sump (submerged), and for sum reason it worked much better...
I empty cup twice a week, and do regular weekly cleaning of cup & skimmer neck
