Right now I only have experience with freshwater tanks, but I would like to start planning for a saltwater tank (years in the future, when I can afford it!)
Would it be possible for someone to give me a crash course in setting up a saltwater tank? The equipment, tank size, tutorial on live rock, etc?
I have heard that live rock is not necessarily needed and you can get dead (?) rock, is this true?
Obviously I have no idea what I'm talking about and plan on buying books to learn about this process in the future, but for now I would really appreciate a general idea how how to set up a saltwater tank with some interesting specimens.
