skimmer for nano cube

Is a skimmer required for a nano tank with live rock, religious water changes and good filtration?

Some will say yes .... some will say no! I have a 12gal. NanoCube and I don't run a skimmer. Current USA has just released their "Fission Nano Skimmer" and from what I have read it is getting good reviews!

Same here ....

DragonForce - Do you run Macro in your main or do you have a fuge? I have a 12gal. JBJ Cube and have recently found a nice little modification to turn one of the rear chambers into a fuge. Right now I have the macro kinda sitting behind my rock work out of sight!
