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.

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.

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.
