Marine Aquariums
So, you're considering entering the world of marine aquariums. Congratulations! Let us start off by saying we wish you all the luck in the world. Many people will say you will need it to succeed. Experienced reef keepers will disagree. Reef keeping is relatively easy once you understand the dynamics of marine chemistry, reef make up and proper stocking levels. In this section, we will go over the basics such as aquarium size, water quality, filtration and stocking. Many of these topics will be discussed in more depth in other sections of this site. Needless to say, your success at reef keeping is directly related to your knowledge level. Experience is always a plus, but years of experience failing or minimally succeeding at something does not outweigh good, solid research. Building a strong knowledge base before starting your tank is critical.

Again, let us state that reef keeping can be as easy.......... or as hard as you make it.

We strongly recommend that you do as much reading as possible on this topic while at the same time spending as much time as you can here at our store. You might also want to join a local marine reef club. These clubs or associations are always looking for new members. Existing members are an excellent source of knowledge and many of them will gladly show off their aquariums to members of their clubs. As you're visiting our store or club members homes begin to try to decide what type of tank you would like to build. What types and sizes of fish and corals make sense to you. What amount of room do you have to dedicate to this hobby and how much money do you want to invest, both start up costs and on going costs. It's up to you to set your goals realistically based on desires, available space and financial investment.
