Ok, well, not sure where you are going with this....looking for a new one now? Seaclone's were never considered decent so not surprising.

That will depend on you and the load you have on your tank, PWC's and feedings.

If it wasn't producing much skimmate for you before then I doubt not having one is going to hamper you.

Im skimmer-less too and I too have 4 fish, the biggest is a 3 imch long engineer goby and a have a pretty good cleaner crew too but my corals all seem to be doing great, they are growing to the point i can tell visually about every 2 weeks, its not much in 2 weeks but I study my tank so hard lol guess its all part of being new. i just do water changes alot, ill usually do small ones probably every week instead of the one big one every month or 2 weeks and my water seems to stay quite stable and healthy. i check it regurlarly too, basically once, a day before a water change and then after

I agree that frequent PWC`s will help the problem but I would still consider a good skimmer down the road.
