You’d definitely want to go with a skimmer that has a lower rating then your display size as the fleece filter will remove a lot of the solids before they become dissolved solids making the smaller skimmer far more consistent. That said, it really depends on your fish load. If you plan on having a medium to heavy fish load, then a Double Cone 180 would work well for you. A heavy fish load is 1/2” of fish per display gallon. If you are going to have a low fish load then a 160 sized skimmer will work well for you. The new SM 160’s should be in US stock in our next shipment from Germany. I‘ve sent an email to Germany to confirm the ETA on them.
