Skimmer and Filter?
hey guys quick question before i set up all blurb. i have a 29g saltwater tank, protein skimmer(rumora), compact lighting, 30lbs of like rock, and a powerhead. No fish yet, an urchin, lots of mushrooms, few snails and a few hermit crabs. my tank is a month old. looks good and clear and parameters are cool. Do i still need a filter of some sort

Note: I do not use a mechanical filter pad. The water is not forced thru the carbon bag. I literally put carbon inside a small mesh bag and drop the bag into the bottom of the filter. The effect is very casual carbon filtration.
