skimmer AND hob filter

Is it too much to have a skimmer and a hob filter on my 20 gallon tank

Nope! You can hardly ever have enough filtration!

Thanks.
Will the skimmer work just as good with the hob or do they filter differently ?

I look at it that an HOB will take out particulate and matter and a skimmer will take out more of the chemicals and bad stuff in liquid form.

I run both too and it also helps in moving water.

That's what I thought. Tank is almost finished cycling and water is crystal clear
