A lot of questions to be answered.....


Recommended Posts

i have some questions for starting a marine fish tank..

1) I'm thinking of buying a two feet tank for my room, which type is better? the plastic or the glass one?

2) Wat is bacteria culture? If it is necessary where can i go about obtaining it?

3) Is it advisable to use salt water readily available in any aquarium shop when setting up the tank?

4) If the water Ammonia level is too high, what are the ways to eliminate it?

5) What type of filter, light and other things that is needed before I could start building up my salt water aquarium?

Try this from Iola's post earlier:

Also, there is a whole section in SRC for those who are newbies, do go take a look and read up...


Be teachable always, nobody has a monopoly on wisdom. But learn to distinguish "fact" from "opinion".
