Saltwater Tanks

A saltwater tank requires a little more thought and equipment to set up however once the aquarium is complete, the maintenance is not too different to a freshwater tank. Fish tank size is the first decision that must be made followed by what is going to be living in the tank. A saltwater aquarium can be fish only, fish with live rock or a complete reef tank system, so it’s important to make these decisions early. These choices will determine what type of lighting, filtration, heater and other accessories are required to maintain a healthy saltwater ecosystem.

Here is a list of aquarium supplies that are needed to set up a saltwater reef tank:

  • Fish Tank
  • Aquarium Filter
  • Aquarium Filtration Equipment
  • Aquarium Light
  • Aquarium Heater or Chiller
  • Submersible Thermometer
  • Water Purifier
  • Hydrometer
  • Water Test Kit
  • Gravel Cleaner Siphon
  • Magnetic Algae Scrubber
  • Fish Net
  • Additives
  • Live Rock
  • Aquarium Sand
  • Fish

The above list gives an insight into the equipment required however some in depth research should be undertaken to narrow down exactly which type of accessories are needed for your setup. This website currently covers equipment & accessories though we are endeavoring to provide a complete resource with “How to” and “Guide” pages to put together a one-stop-shop for all things regarding fish keeping.
