Cool New Guy In Town

Hi! I am very interested in starting a salt water reef aquarium as a hobby and thought this would be a good place to get some ideas on how to go about it. I'm very new to this and any advice would be welcomed. Thnks!

Welcome Billy! Do you already have a tank setup or are you just in the planning stage.

Thanx for the welcome

Thanx. Right now I'm just in the planning stage. I debating between 50 or 60 gallon tanks. What would you recommend for a salt water tank? And are they really hard to keep up as people say?

The bigger you can house and afford, the better. By this time next year, you'll be hankering for a 125 or 180g tank.

check out our articles section for tips on your new tank. Read up and ask "informed" questions of us on equipment considerations before you buy.

Good luck and take it slow.

And of course, welcome to AA!
