A while ago I wrote a ~20 page paper on setting up your first saltwater aquarium. It included information on the composition of seawater, a brief summary of some of the many fish available to marine aquarists, and detailed descriptions of the equipment you'll need to maintain your salt tank.

I decided to make this information freely available over the web so that others can benefit from it. If you find this information useful, would like to offer a correction, or would like to inquire about reprinting rights (hey, it could happen), please email me at rose at
