Here is my 56 gallon fresh water aquarium, I have three angel fish, two gouramis, three tiger barbs, some neon tetras and a few others. My personal favorite are the angel fish, let me know what you think.

I'm really tempted to go buy a 10 gallon tank and have fish in my room since it's the only pet we're allowed to have. But that probably wouldn't be a good idea since I'm gonna be gone May-August... Haha

So i set up my tank finally... but... ran out of money so i could not do salt right now, so i returned some of the stuff i bought and used it for a clip on fluval filter. Here is how it sits as of now... just threw some cheap fishys in there to get her going, going to get some plants and other things this week.

I just purchased a Marineland 10 Gallon with some kind of "Bio Wheel " filter. IT comes with LED Lighting with a night time mode which i think is just a fancy world for blue leds. Any input on this type of filter system? Plus I dont know if ill be able to keep living plants with LED lights.

Those are not aquatic plants. They will die underwater. I hate when stores do that

So I'm thinking of turning my 56 Gal. fresh water into a saltwater tank and starting all over. Anyone have any thoughts or suggestions on doing this or could you recommend a good salt water forum? I have been lurking on reefcentral.com for the last week or so but are there any others?
