Skimmers help with water quality and I highly recommend them. You add your CUC first. It can take a week up to two months to cycle
+1 to this. Generally, lots of live rock, and a sump with a skimmer is all that is needed for filtration.

Yes, as long as you have a skimmer and live rock, and you stay on top of your water changes, you don't really need a filter.
