Transitioning to saltwater

  • For those who started with freshwater and transitioned into saltwater later, what was the hardest part about the transition?

  • I would probably say the aspect of needing more equipment. A ton of times you can get away with just a tank, heater, and filter with freshwater - although saltwater requires more equipment for daily use and for maintaining levels (ex; making sure the salinity is the same when doing water changes).

  • I was thinking about trying it at one point, but for the reasons Avery stated, I never did. Getting new equipment wasn’t convenient at the time, and later I just forgot about the idea/lost interest.

  • 100% parameters. Everything requires very specific set of parameters which makes things way more confusing in terms of water changes, etc.


    TAKE YOUR TIME AND DOUBLE CHECK EVERYTHING is my pro tip
