If you are a marine fish hobbyist or is thinking of starting one, then you must be well versed with your tools and what you need. The most important thing that you must first consider is the very living environment of your fishes, the aquarium, sometimes refer to as the tank. The marine aquarium is not only the place to keep you fishes but also to keep the marine plants so that you can create a conducive environment to co-exist and live in. Where this is concerned, it is important to know what you want to keep in order to get the right size, environment and type of aquariums.
There are a few types of tanks which are largely dependent on their intentions. It could be FO or fish onl, FOWLR or fish only with live rock or reef aquaria. FOs usually keep the larger fishes which are usually more aggressive which means that the smaller fishes will not be able to live in the same tank. FO tanks usually use chemical or manufactured material. FOWLR and reef tanks on the other hand as the name suggests use live rocks which is a material made up of coral skeletons that produces nitrogen waste metabolizing bacteria which is a method where natural biological filtration is created.
