A good stock skimmer for under the stand?

Hi all! I'm trying to find a good stock skimmer (simple or no mods required) that will fit under the stand of my 90 gallon reef tank.
Any suggestions?

Tunze 9010 would work great or maybe a 9015-check with Roger at the Tunze forum. I have it for my 55(a bit overkill but it works great-nice green skimmate and very compact).

Here's a pic of the back of the stand. The closed loop plumbing has been changed so disregard that.

For no mods and no tinkering a RS100 would work well, das ex1 or better yet an ex2.

What's your budget? I have an Octopus NW 150 on my 90. Runs great.

I don't really have a budget limitation, I just want something good, easy to use and relatively maintenance free. It's going to be in the lobby in my office

The next question would be : "What is the footprint you have to work with?"

Regarding the footprint, I have about 11 x 12 x 22" high to work with under the stand. I'll post updated pics of the closed loop shortly.

Depending on your foot print why not ER ? I went through 3 skimmers, Berlin, Turboflotor, CSS220 and have had a ER RS250 for about 6 months and love it.
