For the past year or so I've spent a good deal of time researching the SW
hobby. I have successfully kept FW
tanks for a few years and now want a new challange.
I want to start small but in researching, I found it would be a bad idea to start with something like a 10G tank.
As for equipment, I know most of the stuff I need for a basic FOWLR
My questions are:
1) If I added a 10G sump to a 20G tank would that be sufficent for a first tank?
2) WHY IS LR
SO EXPENSIVE?!? I know its all the handling and processing but its a rock from the ocean...
it just seems like alot of money.
3) Will everything totally die if I get the salinity just a tad off?
4) Is maintanince REALLY more complicated than in FW
If anyone could clear this stuff up for me I would be grateful.
