Coralife Needle wheel skimmer

I have a Coralife needle wheel supper skimmer rated for 125gal. I need to get a new pump for this. Where is a good place to get a pump for it. Does it need the needle wheel or will any venturi powerhead work?

It needs the needlewheel, this is what causes the small bubbles. If you attach a venturi, it won't work as well. I'd post this in teh lighting, filtration forum, there's lots of people with these skimmers.

I would think the needle wheel provides for a lot of the bubble making and just using a venturi pump will not cut it. What happened to the pump?
