Slide 1: Choosing a saltwater tank can be a difficult decision that depends on a couple factors. The type of fish you want to stock, space constraints, and what resources are available to you are all important issues. Because of saltwater fish require larger spaces, you generally want as large a tank that you can support. A large environment is especially important as your fish need space to grow. All of your fish will need this space to provide them with resources like oxygen and enough room to swim enjoyably. These two aspects are generally determined by the size of the tank. Okay, so what about the oxygen content of the saltwater aquarium? The fish tanks surface area is a huge factor in the tanks oxygen content. The surface area is the area of the tank that has the water in direct contact with the air. The surface area allows for gas to enter and exit the tank, so the larger the tank, the more oxygen enters the system. Gas exchange is extremely important to the saltwater system, allowing detrimental gases like carbon dioxide to exit the system and necessary gasses like oxygen enter. Water temperature affects the oxygen content of the tank. Warm water will not accept as much oxygen as cold water. Maximizing surface area is a priority especially for saltwater tanks because most fish require higher tropical temperatures. Fish tanks come in a huge assortment of dimensions and sizes, but only the dimensions will affect the surface area of the tank and not the volume. Two tanks of the same volume can have different surface areas depending on their dimensions. A wide base and a short height is ideal for saltwater tanks as there will a larger rate of gas exchange. What the size of the tank is going to affect is the number of fish and other organisms your aquarium can accommodate. Having too many fish in a saltwater aquarium is asking for trouble. Saltwater aquariums can be easily over crowded which will lower the quality of life for all of your aquatic friends. There are general rules of thumb when stocking an aquarium but they are never meant to completely define how many fish a tank can support. One inch of fish per four gallons of water for the first six months can help you give a good picture. This can double to one inch of fish per two gallons after six months. It is important to take into account the increasing size of your fish when stocking your tank. It is always good to think ahead and be cautious. Larger, thicker fish should also be taken into account as they will always need more room. Saltwater aquariums will require a large amount of resources, including time and money. Cutting corners on your aquarium is not advised. Encountering problems is inevitable even if you dedicate a lot of time and
Slide 2: effort into your aquarium. There are numerous choices for the type of tank you could choose from acrylic, glass and reef ready systems. Glass systems have been used almost exclusively in the past but acrylic tanks are making their way into the industry. Rectangular tanks are the simplest shape and are a common choice, although bowfront, hexagon, and other shapes can be set up. One big feature of glass tanks is that they don't scratch easily, so fixing unsightly scratches won't be much of a problem. Acrylic tanks are lighter and stronger than their glass counterparts and generally come in a larger array of shapes. Acrylic is more costly than glass and can get scratched easier by items such as algae scrapers and decorations. Fixing scratches on an acrylic tank requires buffing and scratch removing kits. No matter which tank you decide, make sure that your fish can lead a happy and healthy life. There is still much time and effort to be put into the future of your aquarium but the reward is great. To make sure you get enough water movement in your aquarium, invest in some good aquarium powerheads [http://www.indigoaquatic.com/powerheads]. Powerheads will promote gas exchange and all of your saltwater inhabitants will enjoy the flow.
