What Skimmer Should I get?

I have a 47g sw, right now all I have is a Emerson 400 Bio Wheel Filter, I want to invest in a Protein Skimmer. Can anyone help me with a good model that I should get?

Right now it is FOWLR only, but will like to add coral later on, and unfortunately no room for a sump at this time.

Thanks for any help

Coralife would be a good one. I'd stay away from CurrentUSA Skimmers.

I will be using a Tunze 9002 for my 40G. You may want to check out the Tunze 9005. I heard that they are great and quiet.
