  5. Okay i am a new member with a growing love and passion for this hobby i recently introduced one of my soldiers to my fish and he also shares the passion so now its like our thing we also brought along another person but, being that we have salt water tanks my friend wants to start a saltwater tank but doesnt know where to start any advice would be great! Here are his thoughts on this subject, he doesnt know if its easier to maintain a 30g vs a 55g, or can he actually use salt water from the ocean and sand from the ocean, and what are the important pieces of equipment that he will need. Any help would be greatly appreciated, and thank you in advance for your answers.
  6. okay so after looking for the morton brand of salt without any success i decided to buiy aquarium salt from the lfs, got home did a water change ive been doing them daily but my readings were good yesterday so i didnt but today i did another 80% water change and my readings are as follows: Ph: 7.4 Ammonia: 0ppm Nitrite: 0ppm Bitrate: 10ppm also in addition to the two anubia plants in the tank i brought my little buddies 4 moss balls that i thought would look good in the tank i followed tithras video on how to disinfect plants before i placed them in the tank but i would love to hear if you guys think it is a good idea or no?

Thank you in advance!
