    if that's the dark side, then it's been luring me for a long time. $$$ been keeping me away but with frag. I might have to revisit and talk to the dark side and see if it's possible.

    It's like freshwater man. Just depends on what you want to keep.

    If you want to keep fishes only then it's as simple as picking the right fishes and doing a water change. With the right set-up you might not even have to do a water change and only top off.

    Keeping corals is harder but it's almost like a planted tank. I would say an all out planted tank is just as hard if not harder then a coral tank.

    I have a saltwater tank and I have to admit... I have it easy... I was given a small 20 gal tank with EVERYTHING. They even brought the original tank water and live rock. So... I highly recommend buying an already set up tank and putting the water in buckets to transport, OR starting from scratch and doing setting it up the long way... to do it right.
    5.5 fw fluval chi - class N top bar snake chested endlers/ red marble bn/ 4 stripe RCS/ pumpkin shrimp
    20 sw cube - a few damsels and a colony of bristleworms
    29 fw - self cloning crayfish..which can't seem to clone haha
    29 fw - mollies / albino bristlenose / ghost shrimp and snowball shrimp/ glo danios
    29 fw - crs/ amano/tiger shrimp /assassins/ whiptails/ plants/ 3 emerald cories
    55 fw - steatocranus casaurius (20ish)/ tetras/ rainbows/large Jack Dempsey
    75 fw - large Jack Dempseys / pictus cat/ yoyo loach/ Red gippicep

    I want a reef tank with corals and clowns and such. My biggest fear is how to mix salt and water and where to store them.
