hi everyone
well I've had a fresh water aquarium for over 10 years now and I need a change. Very Happy
I finally plan to start a saltwater aquarium. Cool
my plans are around 32-40 gallons
my questions are basically, what I will need to keep soft corals and live rocks
I no I will need a protein skimmer, power heads, filter and of course salt Laughing
I would just like some ideas or some basic info on how to start it
thanks Razz

Well a successful marine aquarium requires a fair amount of research and knowledge, there is a science to it involving water chemistry, cycling, animal selection, etc., and a complete review is beyond the scope of a forum like this. A good book will help you develop specific questions which can then be posted here for answers. To get a good foundation for your efforts, make this your first purchase:

Here are some articles and links for inspiration, I wish you much success, and your freshwater experience will help...
