Tips For New Marine Fish Tank Keepers

  • Keep Hardy Fish- While this sounds like a simple tip many people do not do this. They instead buy whatever saltwater fish they think looks good and often times end up with hard to care for species that ultimately ends up dieing. To avoid this research every saltwater fish you want to buy before you buy it! This will help you stick with hardy species that will live long trouble free lives
  • Get a Big Tank- While you do not have to keep a 150 gallon tank to be successful a larger salt water tank in the range of 40-75 gallons will give you the best experience. A salt water Tank in this range will be very stable, allow you to keep a good amount of fish and are not to expensive to set up and maintain. Tanks that are smaller then this will require more attention and maintenance to keep healthy and clean. And tanks that are larger are more money and will also require more maintenance due to their size.
  • Slow Down and learn- Failure to do research and learn about the animals and equipment needed to have a successful saltwater aquarium is one of the main reasons that people fail. Buy a good saltwater aquarium guide and read it and do some research online if you can. But make sure you learn as much as you can before and after you setup your salt water aquarium.
