I am wanting to make the transition from a freshwater to a saltwater setup.
I have a 55 gallon that I am wanting to use. I don't want to attempt coral yet, just fish for now. I was wondering if anyone could give me a list of things that I need. I also have questions about the necessities as well.
1. Do I have to have a sump?
2. Can I just use my standard freshwater lighting?
3. What kind of heating do I need? Will a normal heater work?
4. Will my freshwater filters work, or do I need to buy a protein skimmer?
