So my grandma is getting rid of her 36 g (freshwater) and I have the opportunity to get it. My mom wants me to set up a salt water for her so thats plan. Any tips for a beginner? It comes with eyou would expect: 2 marineland hob
lights, gravel(will be replaced with sand), and decorations.
Couple of questions off the top:
Do I have to use a canister filter? I have never seen a salt water tank with HOB
filters and waned to know why
What is a sump, why is it necessary, and why should i get one?
An acquaintance of mine got this and made his life really easy in terms of setup and maintenance. I was thinking of getting one. Anyone have experience with something like this?
More will be posted as it comes to me.
