A suggestion

We have a lot of people asking the question 'What do I need to start a saltwater aquarium?' so I think that we should have an article that has a list of required/recommended things for different setups. There could also be recommended equipment/brands. That way when someone asks, we just send a link to the article. Just an idea.

55g cycled. 15g sump, refugium, lr rubble, mag 7, Maxi-Jet 1200. 36lbs hirocks.com, 20# keys 20# gulf lr.com to arrive on Wensday!

1.0 Albino Burmese Python
0.1 California Kingsnake
0.1 Ball Python
0.1 Amelystic Corn Snake

Search button is your best friend I say

There are some articles written on the site but I am sure they don't cover everything. More than one way to do most things.

*180 gal Display, 100 gal basement sump, 33 gal refugium, 3x250 MH, 2x160 VHO actinics, zoos, some softies, LPS & lots of acros and other SPS.
*100 gal prop tank plumbed into main system w/ 2x96 PC lights and 1x150 MH,

I was thinking that would be useful also, but i agree with ellisz, there is so many different prespectives, and if your too lazy to research yourself, and go through a lot of the threads, then you are probably to lazy for Saltwater. Thats just my opinion though.

Best way to start is by getting a good book on SW aquariums. I like "The Conscientious Marine Aquarist" by Robert Fenner.
Some people are like slinkies...they serve no real purpose yet can still bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs!:p
Have a great day! Brian
