Hello all

I recently got a 37 gallon tank; empty, no water, no fish, no accessories.
I'm looking at a tank with fishes of course, some live coral and live rocks in the future if that's possible?
Would that be a salt water tank? I'm open to suggestions and thankful for the help

a tank with coral and live rocks would be a salt water tank which is not reccomended for a beginner (assuming you're a beginner). i'd recommend you start with a few hardy fish to get the hang of it, then later upgrade to maybe some fish that require a little more care. a few hardy fish are tetras, danios, and mollies. keep in mind that tetras are shoaling fish and must be kept in groups of at least 6+
good luck and happy fishkeeping!

mileshs95 is talking about a freshwater tank.

a FOWLR ( fish only with live rock ) refers to a saltwater/marine tank containing fish and live rock, no corals.

freshwater would be the easier, cheaper way of having a fish tank. if you wanted a saltwater system dont be discouraged. plenty of reading and questions will put you on the right track of keeping a saltwater tank.

welcome to the forum.

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
