with it being a new tank and you have coral in it(or will) i think your lighting may be more important. thats a personal opinion. its like 1A, 1B. ultimately a skimmer is an option. not something you have to have. regular water changes will help do what a skimmer does. up to a point atleast. you can get by without one. still comes down to i would save for a good quality one rather then get a cheap one now.
