wouldn't hurt. Although i don't have one, there good for skimming the top of the water. Some times it seems like there is a oil slick forming on top of the water, and this will help get rid of it.

Yes Sir! The AquaC Skimmers are the best by far, and IMO, absolutly crucial. SOme people will tell you that you may not need a skimmer, but that is total BS! Yeah, you can get by without one, but with all the money and time your going to be investing in this hobby, your not going to want to just get by. You are going to want to have superior water quality, so your livestock can thrive, not just survive.

I tried a tank with no skimmer once, and it totally crashed after about 6-7 monthes, due to extreme nutrient build-up. See it's an accumulative thing. Right away you will think everything is fine, but down the road you might be asking for trouble! HTH

Try marinedepot.com they have the entire line of AquaC skimmers for a decent price. You may be able to find one a little cheaper somewhere else...I don't know. Check out a ton of different web sites if I were you. I personally have ordered supplies from marinedepot.com at least ten times, and I have never been dissatisfied....ebay too maybe...you stand to save some money if you go that route
