skimmer for 10 G?

I have a 10 gallon marine tank, yes I know thats small, that has 3lbs live rock and will soon have about 2 fish or so and anemones. Is a protein skimmer more necessary because of my tank size or can I do without it with regular water changes?

a definate. small tanks require more maint. since water quality fluctuate so much more than larger tanks. if you are looking at anemones then i suggest looking into sumps/refugums
