Hello all,

I am trying to put together a rather large, perhaps 50 gallon saltwater tank. I am wondering about how much does it cost to maintain a tank this size? Any other tips would be helpful.

It doesn't cost too much to maintain the tank - cost of water and salt, or if you prefer to buy it premixed, the cost of saltwater, averaging about 5 gallons/week, and the cost of carbon or other filter media that must be replaced.

A much bigger cost might be the cost of food, if you're thinking of getting a squid or octopus.

not much as for maintanence...food is what you need to worry about, thankfully most of us have a local fish supermarket where we can find fresh and inexpensive seafood for our ceph's, try finding one near you. :smile:
