I dont want to go over 100-200bucks(220bucks is the most id like to spend) Also I wanna use live rock, but my father worries that itll break the tank. How many pounds of live rock can a tank hold? Also Iam using a mix of rock salt and cichlid salt. How many cups of rock salt should I use to make atleast 1.009 in a 55g(Say exact water would be, 40-50gallons or so). also what else helps keep the tank clean and parasite free? I do water changes weekly. Right now Iam just trying to cycle the water. What are some strong hardy fish that can go in a 55 brackish tank?
Have you googled the care of Diamond back Terrapins ? I did,and found quite a few sources of the type of info your looking for.
Not many turtle keepers here I don't believe.
