Freshwater Starter Tank: Just Add Salt and Substrate. While most of my friends who own and operate local fish stores don’t really like to hear me say this, you can use a typical 20-gallon freshwater starter kit and easily convert it to a marine tank. This can be done at a minimal cost; all you really need to do is remove the freshwater gravel and replace it with a marine substrate (dolomite, crushed coral or the like), and add the required amount of salt mix. You will also need a hydrometer to monitor the salinity so it is kept at the correct level. Converting a starter freshwater tank to marine you also need to be careful to keep the salt from building up on the light. You may, in fact, want to invest in a glass cover for the tank and put the light on the glass cover.

As you can see, the type of light you need really depends on they type of tank your running. Freshwater and fish only tanks can usually get by with the regular Fluorescent lights whereas the freshwater plant keepers and saltwater reef tank keepers will need to invest in better light sources.Part 2 My 55 Gallon Marine Salt Water Aquarium Coral Reef Fish Tank and 29 Gallon Freshwater Fish Tank Saltwater Fresh Water with LED Lights

Most saltwater aquarists strive to have a good crop of growing in their tanks. The different colors of the Coraline Algae not only add color to the tank, but it makes the tank look more like the ocean. Coraline Algae growth is almost entirely dependent on the light you supply to it.If you have a saltwater tank that you plan to keep only fish in then the fluorescent lighting you would use in a fresh water tank is probably sufficient. If you want to keep live coral or rocks you will need much more light. Many people start out thinking they only want to keep fish but eventually want to expand their horizons and add and in this case it is wise to get a hood that has fixtures for 2 tubes, that way you can add more lighting as your aquarium grows. Although some corals can survive with 4 watts of light per gallon, most will need 5 - 8 watts to remain healthy and alive.Brown algae, just like the green algae, need light and a few other ingredients to survive. It could be tank lights or sunlight feeding your algae. The other ingredients are nitrates and silicates that help the growth of brown algae in a saltwater fish tank. Therefore, the first step to get rid of brown algae in a saltwater fish tank is to consider the lighting.
