I will take that as a NO!! Saltwater is going to be a LARGE learning curve for me.

Hopefully I can learn them over the next year or so. Then if all goes well and I save some cash I will convert my 140G to salt. With that I would then have to learn about sumps.

I would've gone for the 140g salt instead of this lol. Bigger=bigger fish.

Very tempting but I dont have the money for the lights. If I go salt on the 140g I will be going all out for reef and will get the best of everything.

Very understanding. I'm planning on buying a 240g but not for a reef, just a predatory tank lol. I don't really care for corals...

Very nice 240. Would look amazing with some saltwater in it . But yea. Going straight from freshwater to a 240 salt would be a stretch for anybody regardless of funds.

Thanks. If money were not an issue I would try it. I understand that the larger body of water will not have drastic swings in parameters like a smaller one. I am excited about the 29G though. Was looking at fish at my lfs yesterday and like the yellow tail damsel, clowns (of course) and the domino damsel. Will ask stocking questions once I am cycled. Thinking about 4 small fish and a small CUC.

No living creature should be in the tank during a cycle. Doesnt mattter if its ammonia or shrimp method. The high amounts of ammonia can kill your inverts or corals or anything else thats living.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.
