    So, I haven't ever been able to find a website that just allows people to marvel at the ocean and the wonders it holds. So I made one, I am going to release it this sunday, and I thought I would share on here, because I find a lot of people who have the same opinion as me on the ocean and the...

    Me and my dad have always wanted to start up a saltwater tank! From the first time we saw the biocube, we loved! Although the reviews aren't great, we thought we would give it a go. At are local fish store a 29 gallon Biocube was $399.99! We didn't want to spend that much on a 29 gallon tank. A...

    What would b better for a reef tank? 36 gallon bow front or 40 gallon hexagon. I was gonna convert the 55 to salt but just seems like too much work. Any advice?

    I started a 50 gal saltwater tank a little over a month ago and am now ready to start adding some critters. I would like your input on compatability and order in which these fish should go in to keep some from becoming to aggresive towards fish added later. The setup includes 50 gal aquarium...

    I got a 55 gallon tank. Set it up for freshwater, cycled it and it is now stocked and decorated perfect. Today I got a 36 gallon bowfront tank. Wife wants a saltwater tank w live rock and stuff like that. Would the 36 gallon be big enough to start the saltwater setup? Or should I move the 55...

    I have an idea, and was wondering if anyone ever had done something similar, I have a 29 gallon aquarium, and equipment such as lighting, heating filtration to go along with it. I want to fill the aquarium half way and have the middle filled with LR and leave some out of the water, where I can...

    Hello. Normally I would have put this on my last "is it worth looking into" thread, but I couldn't find it. Anyway, I found this deal on CL, and I was wondering if I hit gold again. "Selling my entire saltwater setup. Water is fully cycled for the last 3 years and has about 10-15 large pieces...

    I have 2 WC seahorses, and they refuse to eat anything but ghostshrimp and in some cases bloodworms. Ive been desperately trying to get them to eat some frozen mysis shrimp eniched with this fish garlic stuff, but they just show the tiniest bit of intrest and then swim away. How do I get them...

    I have started thinking about a saltwater tank. I have looked up some stuff on the internet, but am still really confused. One thing that confuses me is the filtration. I heard that live sand and rock can help in that area? And then protien skimmers are good for reefs. But I dont get sumps or...

  19. General Saltwater
    are there any saltwater stingrays that would be perfectly fine living in a 40 gallon tank?
