I have a 55 gallon reef tank and i am looking for a good skimmer to place in my sump for it. My current skimmer is a sea clone 100 and i do not think that it does a very good job, and it is noisy. What skimmer do you recomend? I am looking for an inexpensive one as i have a small budget.

the BM NAC6 is probably the best bang for your buck.

I was just got rid of my Seaclone 100 and bought a Tunze Doc Skimmer ("http://allmypetsupplies.com/p-1192-tunze-doc-skimmers.aspx). Have had great luck with it so far and its less noisy. Big bonus there! Good luck on your search.
