I've been researching SW
for about two years now (almost every day in fact, i think I'm obsessed :p)
Anyway, My mom's friend has a SW
tank and it looks terrible (SHE even complains about it) My mom is all worried I will let my tank look like that.
So she asks her how often you change the water, she said never because it's SW
. (Even in FW
water changes are important!) Then she asks if there's a sump under their tank she said no that's stupid. (ok maybe not totally stupid but she said there's no point in it) She also said she doesn't use a skimmer and she uses a canister filter.
And now my moms questioning my way of setting things up based solely on what her friend said!
