Smile I'm a new member

I'm a new member and thought this forum would be a great way to get some helpful information when needed. I have a 36 gallon bow front freshwater aquarium. I'm considering a saltwater aquarium and can use all the advise I can get with what I would need to start one. I am a beginner and would be using a tank under 40 gallons.

Welcome. Don't know much about salt water, but there are folks here who can and will gladly walk you through the process.

Thanks. I was thinking of checking out LED lighting for my freshwater tank. I don't know if I would be able to find that type of lighting with a bow front tank.

The colors of your fish will be so intense!! One of my favorite are the German Blue Rams

Welcome ! If you're doing a sw tank you'll need to decide if you want a fish only with live rock tank or reef tank. That will determine how powerful the lights need to be

Thanks! I plan on having a fish only with live rock. I figure that would be the easiest since I'm a beginner with absolutely no experience with saltwater aquariums. Right now I have a freshwater aquarium and thinking of changing my lighting to LED.
