Hello from Delaware

New to the site as a member but have been reading alot of the posts for questions that I have had about my 2 month old 25g salt water tank. Have had 2 100g freshwater tanks for three years and figured I would try my hand at salt but there is so much information just don't know how to filter it all. My LPS guy has been a huge help but just looking for more. Just have questions if I need to add a protein skimmer or not. I'm sure I'll use the form a lot.

Welcome, using a skimmer will basically extend the time a bit that you can go without a water change, still frequent water changes are usually recommended to replace trace elements and remove toxins same as a freshwater, salt and fresh are basically the same principals of water management, with a few key differences. If you are an experienced freshwater switching to a fish only or fish only with live rock isn't as a big of a jump as perceived to be and a reef tank is kinda like a complicated fresh plant tank. Hope helps give a kick start with research, good luck
