No need for new lights if it's a fowlr.

Lol. On a 29 gallon it optional. No harm in having one but you'll do fine with just weekly water changes. Personally I think skimmers are a good idea because all the water is treated whereas pwc only get some of it.

But if you get the skimmer you still need to do pwc.
