Protein skimmer problem..

I have no protein skimmer for my 5gallon tank.. Is there any problem if i dont have it? How to maintain my tank without protein skimmer? Is there any alternative way rather than using protein skimmer?

You don't need one for a 5g tank. It's better to just do water changes.

One gallon water changes every 2 weeks or .5 gallon water changes weekly will be fine for it
