Re: what do i absolutly need for a salt water tank?

Hey timmy - see here: Saltwater Aquarium Setup for a list of items. I really think that everything on that list is needed. Keep in mind that the smaller the tank, the harder it can be to keep. There are very few saltwater species that you can keep in a 10 gallon tank. Research the animals/fish you're interested in and then find out what you need to successfully keep them.

Re: what do i absolutly need for a salt water tank?

well it looks like i wont be getting a saltwater tank for a while,
i think i'll try a 29 for firs try, i wanted a domino damsil or a clown fish,
possibly a goby if some kind, but the thing is i might have the money but not the skill,
my moms boyfriend wants a Saltwater tank, like a big nice one, i dont know if he really does,
but i want to learn every thing before he hands me a couple hundred buck to get him what he needs,
thanks for your help

no problem - just research everything before spending any money and you'll be fine.
