Yup, sure. Depends on the size of your tank, but I used something like
a CPR Bak-Pak 2R+

on a 55 gal bow-front corner tank, for a few years.

Stay away from any algicides. If you have been doing proper water
parameters and not overfeeding and have proper lighting, you can whip
an algae problem.

Check out a Coralife SUper Skimmer. They work fantastic and do not
cost an arm and a leg to buy, and can be run in a sump or by hanging
on the tank in any place of your choice. Shop online and do a bit of
research on prices as I have seen as much as $70 differences between
places for these skimmers comparing model for model of same Super
Skimmer. Our local LFS sells Sup[er Skimmer 65 models for a whopping
$215 whereas I bought em on line for under $85 including shipping.
