    well.. the salt evaporation isnt really from my own tank as i used to run a tropical tank with a turtle haha

    but i used to go out to peoples homes and clean their tanks ... some of them were massive ! not sure about seat wise but def 5-6m long ! really high too

    You can pick it out from the ocean
    Thats what big aquarium shops do and so do many other hobbyist.
    But i just buy mine from the aquarium.

    In few months time im just gonna get a big truck to deliver.. Sick of taking like 20 20L drums etc..


    Anyways of you can make your own salt water.

    Just make sure salinity is correct.


    In regards to your fish dying. Well it can be a number of things from incorrect levels (such as ph, nitrate, nitrite, etc etc).. Or the fish was stressed.. etc

    damn 5-6m long?? crazy tanks!!

    Well i guess if the owners dont clean it regularly that's what is gonna happen.

    You gotta spend time with it..

    Was at a aquarium shop the other day (dropped off my tank to get it drilled and put a wier in place etc etc) and the guy told me that hes setting up a massive tank for someone who wants a shark in it.. He has no idea about fish tanks nor willing to learn.. Just here is my money and make my house look good lol..
    Its people like those who kill the tank firstly and never look after it.. Then complain that their fish died and the tank looks dirty etc..

    Sorry was just ranting.. lol

    ~bb~ ah im glad i found this thread! I just bought my boy a 4ft tank for his birthday
    
    at the moment he just has gold fish in it because we moved them from the old tank to the new one..old tank/pump was starting to cark it
    
    Anyway, does anyone know whats more maintenance? i mean, gold fish or tropical? (we have a heater too incase we wish to change to tropical). Ive heard goldfish are worse because all they do is poop and eat..
    and ive heard tropical are very high maintenance (but they're fish. bah!) we've heard so many different answers from different aquarium shops. 
    
    Thoughts?
    gold fish can live in whatever conditions, even water straight out of the tap water for a period of time! but with tropicals, it is a bit more maintenance, where u need to make sure the ehater is at 28-32 degrees and weekly water changes and water straight from the tap would kill the fish....once i was tryin 2 transport a ghost knife...and i used tap water...i put the ghost knife in...it died in 1 sec....never doin that again! lol but i reckon tropicals looks alot better!
    Ah right.
    Cheers for that info! its all i needed. yes tropical do look so much better... but I have a very lazy boyfriend so I think we will stick with goldfish, for now!
