When armed with a few proven concepts, setting up a saltwater tank is straightforward and doesn't require months of mind-numbing research. I’ll personally teach you what you need to know, so you can avoid mistakes that will drain your wallet.

In my "No-Nonsense Guide to Setting Up a Saltwater Tank", you'll find:

The key concepts that are actually important for setting up a saltwater tank. Without these concepts, you'll very likely kill Nemo time and time again.

Which equipment is right for your tank and why it matters. Once you know what to buy, you'll never be taken advantage of and waste money again.

Exclusive Mr. Saltwater Tank Bonus Tips. I'll let you in on my secrets that will save you hundreds.

Videos of a step-by-step demonstation of a saltwater tank being setup so you can see exactly how to get your tank started, saving you hours of digging around online looking for pictures and jerky homemade videos.


Even worse, you'll be walking into your local fish store with a flashing neon-green dollar sign sitting over your head that screams:"I don't know what I'm doing, but I'll buy whatever you tell me to. Here's my VISA card, have at it!" The good news: I'll tell you the one question to NEVER ask your local fish store so that you won't get taken advantage of and can save you hundreds of dollars in the process.

Just because you know the concepts to start a saltwater tank, you still have to pick the right tank and equipment to go with it, then put everything together correctly to get your tank started. Does this sound familiar:

  • Looking at saltwater tank equipment online makes your head spin from all the possible choices

  • One person tells you one way to start your tank and the next person says that way is absolutely wrong

  • You've read the "New to the Hobby" section of online forums and you walk away more confused than when you started

I won't lie, I've been there too. My first couple of months keeping a saltwater tank I killed more fish than I kept alive. You don't have to follow in my footsteps though. (In fact, please don't)

You should do months of research before ever THINKING of starting a saltwater tank.

When armed with a few proven concepts, setting up a saltwater tank is straightforward and doesn't require months of mind-numbing research.
