Option. You can drive over it a few time of you want.
lol shame on you
a skimmer is always helpful, some of the smaller ones don't work properly yes but if you have a good one then why not use it.
as for the issue with micro bubbles i nthe tank, try slowing the flow of the pump down by adding more bubbles, if thats not workign try a piece of filter floss infront of the skimmer output, new skimmers have a tendancy to make alot of crazy bubbles untill they are broken in
