I don't use a skimmer on my current 29g or my last one either. As long as ypu do water changes weekly you should be fine.

Do you have an issue that you think you need a skimmer for?

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

A skimmer will export organic materials from your tank. In my opinion you only enter skimmer area when you reach 40-50g tanks. If youre going reef with hi tech SPS corals and the such you might wanna consider it later on down the line though.
