Thanx, yes i have a test kit.... update....
been thinking about moving to a LARGER saltwater tank.. can you guys check out my thread and help me out... i know im new here but i could use the help )
(i know already huh, moving from freshwater to Much larger saltwater tank, FW tanks seems Soo easy and honestly a LITTLE boring, wanted more of a challenge.. which is why im thinking about going to a saltwater tank)
Looking forward to your responses

Dont rush into everything all at once.

You have lots to master in the FW tank before you move onto other things.

Have you kept all the different species of FW fish yet?

Have you been able to "maintain" this tank for a long period?
Have you been keeping with water changes over about 3 months you will be able to judge yourself on how the tank looks and are they stil alive!

Some people stay in FW for about 20 years!
If you want SW then i would suggest getting another tank! If you are very bored then get some more tanks to look at and care for thats what i have done!


Good luck and dont add to many fish at the same time!

For me there are a lot of reasons not to go into salt water. First and foremost is the cost. The extra work is also not welcome. Having kept FW for more than 40 years, I am still not bored.There are lots of interesting and challenging fish in FW. As well there is the challenge of the planted tank. to each their own. Going from one to the other isn't a natural progression.
