Can anybody give me a ballpark on the initial cost and monthly costs of a saltwater tank?
I have an empty 75g tank sittin here and im just seeing my options. Considering salt because clownfish and flame hawkfishes are way too cool to pass up.
Initial costs being lights and rocks and a skimmer and all that good stuff.
Monthly being the supplement things ive been seeing you guys talk about and test kits depending on how much id go through and anything else id have to buy often.
Its been made overly clear to take my time so I know that pro tip, and I will.
The overall costs will vary depending on what you want to accomplish with the aquarium. Are you looking for a fish-only with live rock (FOWLR) system, or do you want to keep corals? The lighting requirement for corals will add an additional $500+ to your set up, as well as greatly increase the annual cost of running the system, accounting for light bulb replacement ($100 annually) and electric bill.
If you are primarily interested in fish, then you should figure somewhere in the $800 range. If this is a cost that fits your wallet, let us know and we can recommend specific equipment and direct you to web sites that offer the equipment at a huge discount.
Hmm so quite a bit of money to see the clowns play in an anemone eh?
Unless ive got something mixed up, the plantlike things are coral right?
Either way ya id like to get suggestions on things and the sites. Too tired to really think straight now, ill check back tonight if I have time before work or when i get off.
corals are animals.
