once again, as Lando mentioned, the bacteria for salt and fresh are not the same.

Nothing works overnight in a saltwater tank.
The items you mention you are getting are all for freshwater. Are we misunderstanding you?

I think so ... He posted a question a couple days ago about the betta and the goldfish and it was moved to the FW section. At least I'm not understanding what it is he's asking???????

And where are the Punctuation Police when you need them!?

God grant me the serenity to accept the thing's I can not change, the courage to change the thing's I can and the wisdom to know the difference!

Well for a slat water tank you dont need
undergravel filter, airpump, air stone, FRESHwater test kit for salt??

You need hydrometer, heater, test kits for ammonia, nitrate, nitrite, PH to start.
Salt, 4-5 lbs of LR to start and some sand..and what ever filters you have..

Everyone is giving you good advice to be a responsible fish keeper... You need to follow some if not all of the advice given if you plan on having success with SW fish.
SW and FW are to totally different things..
Do some reading before you jump in... If you take short cuts you will only be spending more money in the long run and killing fish.

How about adding that book I recommended to your shopping list?

Some people are like slinkies...they serve no real purpose yet can still bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs!:p
Have a great day! Brian
