Is this a sump system? If so, here are a couple nice skimmer options for you, at a decent price:
Marine Series Advanced Protein Skimmers | Venturi Models | Protein Skimmers | Aquarium - ThatPetPlace.com
In-Sump Protein Skimmer - G-1X - 150 Gallon - 22 1/2 in. high | Venturi Models | Protein Skimmers | Aquarium - ThatPetPlace.com (my personal choice)

Thanks! I planned on keeping up with my regular maintenance like you said. This is all just so frustrating. I love my hobbies...

I would suggest you modify the SeaClone to improve its performance. Cut a hole in the lid of the collection cup and thread air line tubing into the skimmer column. Attach a wooden air stone, operated by a good air pump. The added bubbles will greatly improve the quality of the unit.

Thanks for the tip! Once I get it from wake49 I'll be sure to do that.
