Hi, as you've guessed it, I'm new here. I'm also new to saltwater aquariums, but I've been doing research on them for close to a year now. I have my eyes on a 55gal from a friend who is upgrading from a 55 to a 125 gallon saltwater tank. It is not the cheapest tank, but it comes with a nice sturdy stand, and an awesome hood he bought to replace the one the tank came with. It does not come with a filter or fish or rock or water... He told me to try and find a forum to go to and get some extra help in maintaining the new tank, but I don't have it yet.\n\nI just kind of need guidance, this will be my first saltwater tank ever and I want it to be successful. But I'm not new to pets, and I'm not ignorant, I just don't know. \n\nI'm looking to buy a Fluval 306 canister filter, and wanted to know if there was a better filter. I guess I should add I want a community tank mainly. I want shrimp, crab, some clown, gobies, maybe a tang. I don't really know what all I am going to get yet, I figure I need more research and need to set up the tank.
