    So my cat box is in this closet. Will it cause the amonia in a tank by the plug to rise??[​IMG]

    I wouldn't think so, will the tank have a top to it? if not then you may have an issue? not to sure though, this seems like a scientific topic :;madsmiley3 so im just answering you off the top of my head i.e. : I don't think you'll have a problem if you have a top. how big is the tank?

    No. The litter box ammonia won't bother your aquarium, but if not kept clean it will stink up you room. But you already know that. :)

    I googled it and just saw one random thread that said it could raise the levels. No science fact articles. I will put a top on it. Im thinking a 20 gal long tank against that wall near that corner. Im going to attempt my first salt tank.

    Sounds fun tbh I wish I had enough $ for a saltwater tank, I hear there time consuming (like a good hobby should be :) )
    and a 20g saltwater tank against that color wall with Live coral and such (im assuming) would look beautiful!

    Im going to try a basic one i think. Im still nervous.. Simple HOB filter, and live rock set up on a hooded tank. Real simple. Im hoping it wont fail..
