Hi Steven, and welcome to Tropical Fish Keeping 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]

Hi Steven

Welcome to TFK. Have you kept freshwater tanks before or are you going salty right out of the gate?

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.

@ romad
Yea growing up I have had a couple betas in bowls and never really liked them.
Also had gold fish and recently a long dragon fish thing.
Always was the kid digging right in on the marine field trips, have always been facinated with the ocean.
Ive always had my eye on vivid color fish beautiful reef tanks at the hospital and numerous places.

First salt water attempt, to be honest it looks expensive to start out.
Siince getting engaged 3 months ago and moving out with her I have some other car projects going on at the moment so Im not quite sure how Im going to fit everything together, going to try my best since the wife to be doesn't like me not being away from home all the time. NEW HOBBY :D
I think shes pretty understanding in me wanting this tank, just thinks its a little too much.

Im looking forward to seeing how chemical testing in salt water work, organisms grow.
