Adjust the skimmer, play around with it a bit and change the settings.... ie. Try skimming a little dryer, u may just be skimming to wet, I know when I skim wetter it doesnt stink nearly as bad as when I skim dryer.... also unless its filling the skimmer collection cup, don't empty it daily (if you are emptying it daily.... just going off jims ounce a day comment), and when u clean it don't use your hands to clean it.
But too, you have a tiny tank and a tiny skimmer your "waste" isnt going to stink as bad as someone like myself with 15 fish and around 250g. So I wouldn't fully say the skimmer sucks because it dont stink, if your #s are good and its pulling junk from the water I would say for your tank it is doing the job, although it may not be needed if you wanted to do bigger/ more frequent water changes, but then your looking at possibly still having the same issue u have been having with the surface proteins!
