I have started posting questions about salt water as I'm ready to make the jump from Cichlid to SW
next year. I will be setting up a larger tank in my garage with a RODI
setup and other things as a nice (messy) place to learn before moving something like this into the house.
I was wondering about salt creep and the like with the rooms tanks are placed in. Having lived near the beach I know rust is a much larger issue on the coast like it is in the winter up north on cars. Obviously our tanks are on a much smaller scale but how do SW
setups effect your rooms? I was thinking about setting up the RODI
off the water heater and placing the tank next to that storage.
Will I have issues with rust on the water heater, dog crate or any other metal sorta' of near the tank at the end of the year? Are most SW
stands made of pressure treated wood? I will most likely have an open top and if things go well with this first FOWLR
I may set up a 2nd reef tank or convert the FOWLR
to a reef.
I'm asking mostly because I wonder how this will effect a living room or office in the home down the road with expensive theater equipment or computers in the same 100-200 sq ft areas. Make sense? Am I crazy worrying about this?
