Looking for a good salt water forum to get involved with. Checked out a couple but not sure which is best for me.
New into fresh water and I want to start planning a reef tank.
What I learned from fresh is that you should do a lot of research...then do even more....if you want to save money in the long run. I failed to do this with fresh water Aiming for piecing a salt setup over a long period.
in marine tanks research is definitely key (like with anything else really) its really easy to waste a LOT of money through mistakes. I would recomend a couple books: the conscientious marine aquarist by fenner and Reef Invertebrates: An Essential Guide to Selection, Care and Compatibility by calfo and fenner.
"[Wabi-sabi] nurtures all that is authentic by acknowledging three simple realities: nothing lasts, nothing is finished, and nothing is perfect." -original author unknown-
125g marine reef tank, 6 gallon fluval edge minimalist aquascape (in progress), 1 gallon aqueon evo 2 betta tank.
Read Fenner's site Wet Web Media. Spend 20 minutes a day reading the daily correspondence. I've not really read the forum there, but the site itself is a pretty incredible stockpile of knowledge. You can spend hours and hours there.
