    to all of this. I want to start on a saltwater tank[obviously haha] so i can get the cycle going and eventually get an octopus, amongst other saltwater creatures=].

    The problem is i still do not know all the information i should as to what i fully need to get started. Obviously..a 55 gallon, or larger, tank and a chiller possibly, definetly not a heater. thats all i know and it definetly is not much. what else would be wise to get?

    also...Do serpent stars and Octopus' get along?

    :welcome: Have you kept freshwater or saltwater aquariums before? Do you live near any public aquariums? You can gain a lot of knowledge by volunteering in the husbandry department of an aquarium. Also, you should try to find a good local fish store that can help you with setting up an aquarium.

    no i have never kept a saltwater aquarium before=/ and the closest Aquarium to me is in Baltimore, MD. We do have a couple Pet stores around where i live, but, they are not SPECIFICALLY for fish which sucks. I am sure i can obtain, still, a good amount of information from those places though. Thank you alot=]
