some skimmer advice please

i am almost ready to start setting up the 120. i have the lights, sump, etc, waiting on the electrician and have to build the stand. i am rethinking my skimmer choice though, initially i was thinking of using a red sea prizm pro deluxe, but some research i been doing has me rethinking my choice. i am looking at either a reef concepts areo foamer 600 series, etss downdraft skimmer etc or a current.
i get hang on skimmers but this larger tank is driving me crazy, i am hoping to have mostly lps and 1 or 2 sps and a few (2 to 3 fish) at most

How is the new skimmer working out? I am glad you decided against the Prism Pro Deluxe... not a great model for a reef system.

i wouldnt worry.

people will disagree but i dont think theres such thing as "over skimming" esp. on a 120
