A saltwater fish tank will probably be the most striking addition one can make to their home or office. The color and brilliance of the saltwater fish and other saltwater creatures will captivate just about everyone by bringing the color and activity of a coral reef right into your home.
If you are a novice to saltwater fish tanks then it would be a good idea to seek the expert advice of a professional saltwater fish tank keeper before you set up your tank. It will take quite a bit of up-front work before you can even start to introduce fish, corals and anemones to a new saltwater fish aquarium. The water in a saltwater fish tank will need to be at the optimum ph, temperature and salt content before it is safe for living animals. Once a saltwater fish tank is set up and properly maintained, you will be able to create a safe and secure tank for your saltwater fish. The more stable a saltwater fish tank is, the better long term home it will be for its new inhabitants.
The species of fish you can put in one of these saltwater fish aquariums are quite breathe taking. The lights of the tank will help bring out the true colors of these fish and colored corals creating a very lively and vibrant habitat. One thing you can do to further the illusion of the deep blue sea is to add a solid blue background to your saltwater fish tank.
When it comes to choosing what saltwater fish to inhabit your tank, there are literally hundreds to choose from. Some of the most common choices include: Lion Fish, Puffer Fish, Clown Fish, Eels, Panther Groups, Trigger Fish, Shrimps, Crabs, and Dog Puffers. You will want to be careful with the shrimps, crabs and snails because they can and will eat any anemones you may have.
