Aquarium Care is a very useful book for people which want to have a fish tank at home and it is completely FREE (105 pages)
Having a salt water aquarium can be a lot of fun. There are many benefits to having it around including the wide range of fish and marine life that you can stock it with and call your own. Yet, you can also find that there are some downsides to having this type of aquarium too. It is essential that you take the time to compare these options before you choose whether or not you should go with a salt water aquarium or with a fresh water aquarium.
A fresh water aquarium is easier for most to maintain because it is easier to keep clean. A saltwater aquarium will be harder to clean but it will be able to be stocked with a larger amount of variety in the fish and creatures that you can put in to it. A fresh water tank will be less expensive as will the fish that you stock it with. But, again, there is more variety offered in the salt water version. And, you can even create your own living ocean in your salt water aquarium because you can put in a wide range of other sea life animals that are not fish.
