lol think theres a bit more to it :thumbsup: now where is the SAXA SALT :-D

I beleive the chemical balances are far more critical in a salt water tank. Therefore a lot more hard work setting up and keeping it that way.

I guess it's a lot more hard work but the benefits are greater.

yeh just want to do it now

you need quite a bit for kit like protien skimmers ect, i would buy a book i got this one
amazon.co.uk/Int…-13
after reading this my aquaruim is still tropical!! Do lots of research first as it could prove costly not to! Also not all tanks are designed to be able to add the extras needed for marine.
Good luck :thumbsup:

Marine tanks/conversions are expensive !

Looked into this a while back, but it was so costly I just upgraded my tropical tank instead....
