Hello

Hello! I'm new to the forum and recently discovered I have an interest in aquariums. I am here to learn more about my current tanks/fish and the possibility of eventually getting some saltwater fish and reefs.

If I did make the commitment and go saltwater, how much harder would it be? I think I have been doing well with the freshwater and I am now starting to debate going full marine... I really like my options of fish for this, however how much more time will I have to invest in care? Tank size I should choose?

Welcome to the forum! As for tank size and extra care you would have to put into a saltwater tank depends on your type of fish you want and the type of corals (if you want them)

to the forum! I don't own a saltwater tank, but I have done my research because ive wanted to start one. I was going to do a 20 gallon tank, I already had the tank and the filter but besides that if you want to do live rock with corals and everything, start up cost was going to be approximately $650.00 or more. So keep that in mind.

It is a lot cheaper without live rock and corals, but so much more fun im sure with live. Youd have to buy your water, or set up an RO/DI system in your house. With saltwater aquariums, bigger is better. Smaller tanks need a lot more maintenance because bacteria and ammonia, etc. build up faster.

But if you give us more information about what youd like to stock, everyone will be able to help you out more specifically.

You've come to the right place!
