Hello everyone. I'm new here and to the hobby in general. I have an empty corner in my living room that is just begging for some aquarium beauty!
I've always admired salt water tanks because the fish/rocks/plants are just beautiful. That said, I've never, until now, had the time/money/space to join the hobby.Well, now I kinda do.
The thing is, I don't really want to mess with maintaining a tank everyday. I don't really have time and some days I don't even make it home. That said, I'm really interested in a salt water aquarium without fish (feeding 2-3 times a day).
I don't know much about the intricacies of this hobby, but it made sense last night when it hit me. If all I had were pretty corals and plants, would the tank not be able to thrive with relatively little maintenance? Changing water every few weeks or adding chemicals/"food" 2-3 times a week is no big deal. What I want to avoid is the routine feeding schedule generally associated with fish.
I'd like to reiterate that I have next to no idea what I'm talking abut when it comes to stuff like this so I could be way off. I tried to google my idea but I mostly got links to fake plants and decorations; no real information. So here I am, asking the experts, is it possible? If so, what do I need to be cautious of? Am I wrong about the maintenance requirements of fish?
I'd appreciate any input you're willing to contribute. Hopefully I can become a fellow hobbyist!
