The bad news first...I am 23 and back living with my parents
It's a long story about a bad breakup...no one wants to hear it. Anyway, so about a year ago, I had to move back in with my parents, which is when I got into the aquarium hobby. I am only allowed a 10 gallon tank in my room, which I have happily set-up and running as a freshwater community tank.
The good news....I got a raise at work!!
So anyway, to make a long story short, hopefully I will be moving out between 3 months from now and a year from now. When I move into an apartment, I want to start one or more saltwater tanks. I have never had a saltwater tank and I am aching to have one! I don't know if I want a reef tank or just a regular saltwater fish tank.
Question 1: For a beginner should I just start off with saltwater fish and some decorations?
Question 2: Does anyone know any really good books on saltwater aquarium keeping? I would prefer it to have information on everything from setting the tank up, to the fish and plants, and corals and how to set up and maintain a reef and all the other wonderful jazz I don't yet know about.
Sorry about the long message...I had to get it all out in one shot, lol!
