I have a 55 gal
tank from a friend. The tank is good, but he travels way too much and did not have time to keep it up. He sold everything in the tank and put it in storage. He just gave it to us because we wanted to start one.
We have a 10 and 55 gal FW
running. I am wicked intimidated by SW
and wondering if I should start one, but my husband and I would love a reef tank. We have heard that if you have never had a SW
tank before that a 55gal is the perfect size to begin with. I am in college, have a part time job and a two year old. How much time do they really take? Should I hold off a few years until I'm done with school and little ones?
Also if I do go with SW
how hard is a reef tank for a beginner to keep up?
Honesty is best. Thanks!
