Will skimmers deplete plankton?

Im wondering if skimmers will deplete the amount of plankton in your tank by any amount? So I can adjust how much I add accordingly.

You cant. Best thing to do is shut your skimmer off for about an hour after you add.

Do you then turn it back on to remove the excess in the water?
