After successfully establishing a freshwater tank, you may want to try something more complex, elaborate and difficult to maintain: the saltwater aquarium. Some first-time fish owners opt to start at the top and begin with a saltwater tank. To help both the beginner and the advanced, we have compiled some articles to help you establish your first saltwater tank.

Before beginning, learn how to set up your saltwater aquarium. This article will help you prepare for the challenge. You will learn what it takes to have a thriving home for your beautiful fish.

Saltwater tanks can be difficult to maintain. Having the proper equipment will go a long way towards keeping your tank healthy. All aquariums need proper filtration and aeration. Likewise, proper heat sources and lights are crucial to your tank.

Once your tank is prepared, you will need to know how to test the water to make sure the water quality is high. Improper water quality is the number one cause of illness and death in fish, so you need to know what is in the water. This is one of the most important parts of having an aquarium.

Now it's time to accessorize. Plants as well as aquarium accessories will create a more lifelike world for your fish.

After your tank has the proper equipment and accessories, you can start to think about adding fish. Choosing fish for your saltwater aquarium takes a little planning. Some species do not live well with others. Learn who gets along with whom before trouble begins.

You may not realize how fish are acquired for saltwater tanks. This article will help you populate a saltwater tank without harming the environment.

Your tank is all set up and now needs to be maintained. Learn how to feed your fish and learn how to tell if your fish is sick.
