Hi mauriceward,

What size tank are you looking to start? Also, what is your budget like? I know there are several different ways to go about it. For instance, you can get away with starting with a mechanical filter but many stand by the more expensive wet/dry filter.

Many of our members have a lot of experience with saltwater aquariums and if you tell us some more about the tank you are interested in starting I am sure we can help you :)

How did you become interested in saltwater fish? Have you kept freshwater?

Like the admin stated. Can you give us info on what size tank you are interested in getting. Because the size depends on what you should have to start a Marine system. :D
