The fish and coral you add to your tank are going to eat, drink sleep, pee and poop in your tank. Yep, that’s possibly the first time I have ever publicly written about pee and poop, but I’ve wanted to ever since I was an adolescent. I’m not going to lie, that was one of my main reasons for wanting to write this article. Now that I got that out of the way, it feels a bit liberating…but I digress. The point I was trying to make about how to cycle a saltwater tank before I sophomorically distracted myself was that this waste can build up in the tank–and that’s a bad thing.

The water, obviously, is a very important component of your tank set-up. The salinity of your water is very important for keeping your tank friends happy and healthy. You can buy great, easy gadgets to calculate the salinity of your water so you can check yours occasionally to avoid evaporation or low salt content. Your salinity should be kept at about 1.021 to 1.026 S.G. (specific gravity). You should adjust your salt content accordingly if your tank's salinity falls outside of this range. You can buy aquarium salt and mix it in with your water to start out. However, you have to keep in mind that the water in your faucet contains things like calcium that can be harmful to your tank. Purchasing a large bag of aquarium salt is about $15 or $20 and lasts about three months with the initial set up and water changes. The safest and easiest way to get saltwater for your tank is to buy it by the gallon at your local fish store. Most stores have premixed water that is the correct salinity and is mixed with purified water. It costs about $2 per gallon at my local pet store. How to: Setup a Saltwater Fish Tank - YouTube
