Protien skimmer???

Hello, I was wondering ...Do you absolutely have to have a protien skimmer. I have a 29 gallon standard FOWLR and I do not have a protien skimmer yet. I have never noticed any problems but I was wondering what the protien skimmer does exactly. Also if I do need one I would like a hang on the back one. Can anyone suggest what type and where I can find one at a good price...

A protien skimmer removes DOC from the water. With a FOWLR you don't have to have one but good idea to have one. I would go with an AcuaC Remora. Little more expensive but a great skimmer. Talk to darin at Captivereefs.com he sells them at a good price. He is one of our sponsors.
