portein skimmer for 29 g biocube?

I just set-up a 29 gallion salt water take. Do I need a protein skimmer? If so does anyone have any experience with the protein skimmer that is made for the biocube (BioCube Protein Skimmer). I only have about 20 pound of live rock and acouple fish right now but i do want to get some coral in the future.

IMO 30 gallons or less I would just do frequent PWC`s.



You can view many of my fish and corals in my photo albums in my profile.

Not really needed as Mel said just do 20% or 30% h20 changes weekly ... that should be enough to export the excess nutrients and replenish the trace elements ...
