Hello, all. I want to set up a saltwater aquarium and I want to do all the research I can before setting it up. I would like some advice and opinions from people with experience with saltwater aquariums. Your help is most appreciated! :D


Thanks,

READ. Do a google search and read. Read throught the threads on this board. It's not possible for posters here to give you all of the info you'll need, so I suggest google, and perhaps

There are many, many books on the SW aquarium hobby that will give you all the information you need, plus more. The net and books are the best way to get an overview, and then you can ask questions on specifics after that. :wink:

Firat off...Welcome to AquariumAdvice.com!!! :smilecolros: :smilecolros: :smilecolros:
I second the Robert Fenner book. Packed full of great info on getting started. As you are thinking, use the time to decide what type of tank you want, how big, the type of filtration method and so on. Once you get a general idea you can narrow things down.

I agree. This is a must-have.

Another must have is patience, patience, and more patience.

Where is the best place to buy 'The Consientious Marine Aquarist'? I saw the paperback on overstock.com for $27.00 but that seems a bit much.

if you think $27 for a book is too much, i have a feeling you are getting into the wrong hobby. BTW i paid $40 for it at Borders, so $27 is a good deal.
