i have a 29g with a 20g long sump but i just recieved a 90g yesterday and am having some problems trying to find a cheap but good protein skimmer and how fuch flow i need from my return. i will be pushing at about 5.5 feet on 1/2" pvc and probably run 2 koralias inside the display. i plan on keeping some acro, mushrooms, zoos,xenia, and possibly duncan, aussie lord and favia. Any recomendations for a good cheap skimmer and return flow would be great!! thanks

In all sencerity I have to say don't look for a cheap skimmer. You really do get what you pay for and in the long run you will be happy that you did.

I recommend you read this thread http://www.thereeftank.com/forums/f267/my-skimmer-journey-140385.html before you make any choices on skimmer.

If you google "head loss calculator reef" you will find some online calculators to help you figure pumps.
