So all I need is a Protein Skimmer and nothing else?

From what I have been reading all I need to add to the tank for filtration is a skimmer? Is a Aqua C Remora good enough ?

55 gallon tank
55-60 pounds of live sand
55-60 pounds of live rock
and a Aqua C Remora

will be good for a fish only tank?
No need to add a XP3 canister filter or anything else?
Thanks !
Rich

you have filtration already, the live rock and the sand bed are filtration. If you add a canister filter, or other form of filter, you are making the systems go against each other. The sandbed and liverock will be fighting to handle the nitrate that the other filter produces.
