    I am a first time tank owner. I hope to one day be able to get a sepiolid, perhaps the bobtail squid, but not yet. I am working myself up to a sepiolid but am just trying to get a marine tank right now. How much does it cost to maintain a 50 gal tank? What should I put in it? Any information from a current or previous owner is greatly appreciated. Also any of those little owner tips would be AWESOME!

    Hi Rachibelle,

    It's hard to give you a clear answer about the cost of maintaining a tank, because it depends on choices you've made. If you buy your RO/DI water and mix your own salt water, I'd say that tank maintenance would be a couple of dollars/week.

    As for tips, the best thing is to read the Ceph Care Articles and skim through the past postings - you'll find many!

    Hope this helps,

    Nancy
