What's a good skimmer to get for a 29 gallon Biocube?

I have the aquaticlife mini skimmer 115. In the first chamber. It works pretty good and its cheap.

Does it fit right in or do you have to cut to make it fit?

I also have this skimmer. However, I have it in the middle chamber. Have to empty it at least every two days. Very happy with it.

Tunze 9002 with the SteveT modified cup - once you get it setup it works like a champ.

is this with the stock lid, or do you have different lighting??
because you would be much better off with a hob skimmer on the back if possible.
but, they make this skimmer for that exact model if you need to keep your lid on:
