You really don't need one. You could look into hob models if you insist, the in tank ones are ugly and out of tanks ones can be loud.

Honestly hob skimmers suck. I had one on a 20 and it was miserable. Never pulled much and if it ever overflowed it was a mess...

Just stick to weekly wcs and not overstocking.

If all your doing in a 30 is a pair of clowns then you definitely don't need a skimmer. Weekly wcs will be perfectly fine
