I am currently starting a brand new 37 gal tank with a 10 gal sump, I am new to the salt water gig and need recommendations on a protien skimmer. I want the smallest, due to 10 gallon sump, but most effective protein skimmer with $200, any ideas?

BAK_PAK 2 Skimmers lol I already suggested this

some others:
ASM Mini-G Skimmer-
SWC Xtreme 120 cone (spend like 50 bucks more and get this powerflu skimmer)-
Vertex 80-
Reef Octopus Needle Wheel-

Most of this skimmers are good skimmer and requires space. That's why I said go with th fuge only and HOB skimmer or you could just do a sump and no fuge. You could also do an outsite sump fuge. It's a sperate containers only for a refugim.

Thanks again ATP, I'm just still new and trying to desipher all of the information. A sump only might be the way to go, I think i'm gunna purchase A nice skimmer, and return pump, and throw them in my tank and see if I can squeeze in a refug. If I can't like you said, it is hard to rig up a separate refugium chamber? Would I be able to just do a minI overflow into the return pump chamber of the sump? I would also just split the overflow drain from the main tank to drain in skimmer and separate refuge... but hom will I get water from separate refuge back to return chamber in sump?
