Choosing a Saltwater Aquarium

Choosing a saltwater aquarium need not be a daunting task. Many people fear that having a saltwater aquarium will be much more complicated than having a freshwater aquarium. Though saltwater tanks and fish do tend to be more expensive to maintain, they are not necessarily more complicated to care for. In choosing a saltwater aquarium, you will first want to decide what type of tank to purchase. You have two basic options: glass or acrylic. Glass aquariums are generally cheaper and scratch resistant. However, glass tanks are very heavy and are more likely to spring leaks or to shatter. Acrylic tanks are more expensive, but aesthetically speaking, are much more pleasing to look at than glass tanks. Keep in mind that acrylic will scratch very easily. In choosing a saltwater aquarium, make sure that you have the proper space in your home for the tank, and also make sure that your floors will be able to support the weight. A good starting aquarium is a 55-gallon tank.
