Bubble king mini 160 60g cube ?

Hey guys, Im looking at grabbing a Bk mini 160 from a local reefer as I have been trying to get the quietest skimmer possible. I am worried that my 60g wont have enough bio load. The BK mini was purchased in 2016 it is the red dragon ac pump. Im just starting up the cube but plan a heavy bio load using the 1/2 of fish per gallon rule. Will I be able to properly operate this skimmer with this size tank ?

I see the double cone 130 might be better suited but that will be a 300$ increase as I can only find new ?

The Mini 160 while oversized could work. It just wont be as consistent as something like the Double Cone 130 which would be far more size appropriate and more consistent as a result. If given the choice, the Double Cone 130 for sure.
