    Should be fine, i ran mine without a skimmer for 6months as a test and no harm done BUT i wouldn't recommend it to beginners and or new tanks if you do not know your tank and or what your doing.

    I have a 1000 system that has never had a skimmer. Been like that for 18 months so no need for you to stress about it.
