This is an excellent guide, and you can do it! I'll say that it seemed very difficult before I got started, but understanding comes and things get easier as you put ideas into practice. Best advice? Take it slow.lewrine said:I know it's not easy to start with saltwater venture but thanks to guidelines that we can follow to make things easy. I'm planning to try saltwater soon and I hope I can get through with it just like the way I handle aquarium.
I’m not Nart and I’m relatively new to this myself (my tank is only 7 months old) but I think coralline algae is a sign of good tank health and a maturing tank. There are bottled cultures out but I can’t speak to its effectiveness because I grew mine naturally. Some sw critters do use it as a food source.Fishcat said:As someone for whom saltwater is (possibly) in the far-distant future, may I say “thank you” for this excellent and concise write-up? I do have one question. If you want coralline algae to grow in your tank, would you have to start with live rock, or can you buy algae cultures, or what? Everything I’ve read seems to place great importance on coralline algae, but it’s not clear to me if that’s just aesthetic or if it’s serving an important role in the tank.
