Skimmer Reccommendations

Can anyone recommend a good skimmer? My setup is a 40 gal breeder. Looking to spend anywhere between $100-150.

Are you looking for in sump or hang on? Ebay has a few pretty decent hang on's for way less than what your wanting to spend. That kind of money for a hang on protein skimmer would be for very large aquariums ( for hang on skimmers). Hope this helps. If you have a sump let me know and i will post a few good name out there. Remember some will come without a pump and you will have to get a pump depending on your aquarium water volume.

There are a lot of hang on skimmers on the market, but most of them under the $100 range leave a lot to be desired in terms of performance. I have used most of them, and I would suggest looking at skimmers in your listed budget range of $100 to $150. The Coralife Super Skimmer would be a nice option, especially the 125 gallon model.
