IMO better a bad one then no skimmer.

My underpowered skimmer pulls out tons of junk from my 110g reef. I have a few tanks with real cheap skimmers and a tank w/ no skimmer.

IMO, skimmers are by no means necessary depending onw what you plan on keeping and your setup. Frequent water changes, running GAC, and be very careful on amounts of food provided to the tank will help a great deal.
