Protein Skimmer under 22” y’all?

It is time to upgrade my protein skimmer. I just setup a 120g tall with a 35g sump. I currently have an ASM G2 skimmer that is about 15 years old. Looking to upgrade by my stand only has a 22.5” clearance bc of a shelf. Any recommendations for a protein skimmer that will fit and also do a great job? Thanks in advance,
Lew

Is that height including room that you need to take out skimmer cup? Putting a skimmer that just fits into the stand, only to figure out you have absolutely no room to remove the cup sucks.

That is the room that I have in total. I am thinking that I may need to cut out a section of the shelf to fit in a new skimmer

Tunze 9410 skimmer with the DC pump. It’s short, set and forget and has plenty of power with the DC pump.
