Need Some Guidance for an External Protein Skimmer.

So if you haven't already stumbled upon my aquarium thread. I have a 120 gallon aquarium with no sump (just my personal choice for the setup). I have found some decent Hang On Back Skimmers but I have been toying with the idea of purchasing an External Protein Skimmer and just plumbing it my aquarium directly. However, I have no prior experience with External Protein Skimmers and I don't know what is necessary? Can I install the External Protein Skimmer on the Floor below my aquarium or do I need to install it on a shelve sitting above my aquarium? I would definitely love to purchase a large Recirculating Protein Skimmer which is why this idea has popped into my head. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
