Nano Skimmers

I am budget challenged and only have a 10 gallon nano tank at this time. I am running a HOB API superclean 5-20 filter on it right now, but was wondering if anyone has tried:
Taam Rio Nano Protein Skimmer
and wonder if they are any good....
I DO intend to do weekly water changes

I would skip the skimmer and just keep up on water changes. No need to spend money when it is not needed

No corals, and I didn't buy the skimmer. Someone offered it to me for free brand new. Probably not that good in that case but can always mod the crap outta it for some totally new purpose
