    it all depends on the tank and equipment. also filling the tank with stuff costs a lot of money


    look at my little tank i think its a bargain! nice tank, good lightning, etc for about $200. filling it up with sand, water, rocks isnt to bad, but buying corals and stuff is and then you have to maintain the coral. some corals are extremely hard to maintain and others are easy

    That is a pretty good deal. I want a salt water tank just so I can have a volitan lion fish. Do you think the 14g tank you have is big enough for one or would I need a larger size?

    Dude lots of miss information here.... you need to do weekly water changes and weekly water testing to make sure all the acids and bacteria at safe levels.
    I have been an aquarium keeper for the past 10 years i went from 8 to only 2 why? because they take lots and lots of time and im talking about Fresh water, now salt water i wont even bother for another 5 years at least if you $#@! up it is very costly. Here is my 55 Gal Fresh water through its life stages in the past 5 years.

    fish need nutrients just like we do new water brings them old water doesn't you need to take out about 10% of water every week and put in new water.

    Come on, I didn't have to do weekly changes for fresh water or monitor it that much. It was pretty easy honestly.

    my fish and the other animals get their nutrients from the pellets i feed them. for other nutrients for corals and what not depends on your filtration system. a more natural filtration system will grow its own nutrients atleast thats my understanding of it. i alway thought you do water changes to get rid of some of the waste thats still in the water, but im still new at this so i dont think my opinion matters much

    man your fish must be capricious. if i had fish and they saw you comment, they would laugh so hard.

    every animal i have had was cool, and eventually they died like a hero.
