When Stephen told me that he wanted a Saltwater Fish Tank for Christmas this past holiday, I thought "crap". Does he have any idea how hard it is to establish a saltwater tank? So I cashed in on my Citibank rewards and went out and bought him a 55 gallon long tank and stand, salt for saltwater and shell sand and filters. I brought it home in November and started it without fish. This thing took weeks of tweaking, more salt, less water, less salt, added rocks and on and on and on. It wasn't until January that we wee finally able to start to add fish. We added three damsels and managed to kill off the black and white one within two days, but the two blues are still going strong. One thing we did manage to grow was a lot of algae. I mean a lot of algae. We slowly added more fish, another to damsels, then two clowns, three turbo snails and six little crabs, trying to beat the algae. Finally a lawnmower blenny, which I endearingly call Jack Blenny. Get it? And finally a bright yellow tang and a chocolate chip starfish. I never realized how much personality saltwater fish have. The clowns swim into your hands and the starfish actually positions himself on the glass to be hand fed in which he will flip himself over only enough for us to lay the sea veg into his body, so that he may eat. It's absolutely fascinating. It was a lot of work, but well worth it. I can sit next to the tank and watch for hours. Very relaxing.
