Hello From Wigan :D

Hello,

My name is Alex and I want to start a new project with my 46L Fluval Edge Tank.

I would like to convert this to a marine Tank, but this will be my first. I've only ever had tropical fish and I have had them for a while but would really like to try marine tank and would appreciate all the help and advice you can all offer me.

I understand that a nano tank is probably not the best for a beginner but it's all I have to start off with so any help would be great?

Thanks in advanced

Alex

Hi and welcome. Just so you know this is a predominantly American member forum and so I don't think many will know where Wigan is 😂I am from Oldham 😃. I have frequented lots of forums but this is my home and is the most helpful and friendliest forum around in my opinion. I am not a saltwater keeper so can't help you with your question. You will have better luck posting in the saltwater section.

Happy fish keeping.
