I'm sure i saw some where that you wanted to do a planted freshwater community tank.

Welcome to AA and hope to see lots of pics of your up coming decision.

That was Anne's idea (ZAGZ). She too will be assimilated!
Resistance is futile. Your life as it has been is over. From this time forward, you will service us.

Begin transmission RESISTANCE IS FUTILE, YOU WILL BE ASSIMILATED... RESISTANCE IS FUTILE, YOU WILL BE ASSIMILATED...

So, have you decided to give the Salty side a try yet?

Don't listen to them ---- LOOK WHAT SALTWATER HAS DONE TO THEIR BRAINS - They think they are Borgs --- Freshwater, thats the way to go. Calm, tranquil, serene, with no assimilations.

I do see SW in my future. but I will have to wait until the kids get older. Too much time running to football, soccer, baseball, etc. I don't want it to become a chore.

I have been looking at those nano SW tanks. That might be the start.

nanos not really recommended for starting sw. with such a small water volume any little thing that goes wrong will affect the tank instantly.

Good advice. What I really want to do/pipe dream....

Do a 300 gallon SW reef some day. Need to buy a house with an unfinished basement first.

If anyone has a link to a reef/sw beginners guide I would like to do more research there.

(I have read the post here about required and optional equipment)

Take a look at The New Marine Aquarium: Step-By-Step Setup & Stocking Guide by Mike Paletta. It's a bit dated but still a very good guide.

Frequent the SW beginner's forum here and ask questions whenever you have them.
