is this true or not
is it true that u can start a saltwater tank with just a protein skimmer or u need a filter or sump.

A high quality protein skimmer will do wonders to keep the water clean, however you must provide a surface for bio activity or your nitrite and ammonia levels will probably still build up as nothing will convert them to nitrate. With that being said, I'd have some live rock or a filter of some sort for bacteria to grow on or in.

you should also add a cleanup crew if you can. Also the more current you have, the better your tank will be. Hope this helps!

IT IS PERFECTLY CORRECTO TO HAVE A MARINE TANK WITH LOTS OF LIVE ROCK, ONE INCH DEPHT (MINIMUM) OF SAND AND A GOOD PROTEIN SKIMMER. DO NOT FORGET THE WATER CHANGES.
