Hello all, I have been into freshwater for years and am intrigued by the thought of one day having a SW
I am in love with seahorses, and aside from knowing that you have to cycle a SW
tank the same way you do a FW
tank I know pretty much nothing.
I am considering converting my 46 gal FW
high tech planted tank to SW
....but I am on the fence.
Some of the other things I have always loved are various anemone (sp?) and some corals. I also like starfish.
What are the water change schedules like with a SW
tank? I also understand that you probably need to age the water used for wc
to make sure the sg
is righ etc.
Other things to consider (you can tell me if they are good or not)
I have hard well water with an aged pH of 8.5 GH
I have a young family and can't see doing more than a 1x weekly waterchange, especially with needing to store/age water.
Perhaps you can point me in the right direction for research?
