46g SALTWATER

I used to love having fish & then I got married. Now that she's gone I'd love to get back into it! I used to have a 30g tank that I turned into a brackish tank, but now I want to go SALT. I found a 46g that would work. I really want clowns & tangs. The others I'm not really picky. I have NOTHING right now! I am looking for some advice if & what I need. I MEAN I NEED EVERYTHING, ADVICE TOO!

Sure, as long as you do tons of research before putting any fish in there. Many saltwater fish, like tangs, are open water swimmers and need very large tanks so they can remain healthy.

46g BRACKISH

OK, I've finally decided to get into my aquarium life again! Phew!!! I would like to go brackish/freshwater I think, any opinions as the max I can go is a 46g bow front tank? I would love to go brackish again!

It's definitely a good tank size to start back up with. What do you want to know about brackish? Fish, amount of salt, maintenance etc.....
There's tons of fish options for freshwater, and some pretty interesting choices for brackish as well.

Thank you for replying to me. I pretty much need information on everything! Fish-with pictures, amount of salt, how often for water changes happen, type of filtration, maintenance etc.....like I said the
SeaClear 46 gal Bowfront Acrylic Aquarium Combo Set
is the biggest tank I can go with!
