Making the switch from freshwater to salt
I am new to this site and really enjoy all of the information that is shared. I have had a 45 gallon freshwater semi-aggresive community aquarium for 12 years. I recently decided to move this aquarium to my office and purchased a 54 gallon bow front corner aquarium for my home.
I have not set up my new aquarium yet but was considering making it a salt water aquarium. I decided to do diligent research to see if I could handle the maintenance required for a saltwater tank. My Dad who is also an aquarium enthusiast tried his hand at a saltwater tank 40 years ago and says it is not worth the trouble. By everything I have read on line, it appears the hobby has changed so much over the past 20 years, that they are no longer as hard to keep.
I do like the ease of my freshwater aquarium. Any advise anyone can give me would be greatly appreciated.
