One newly bought fish that is introduced to your main tank can easily wipe out the entire tank population. Better safe than sorry, right?Quarantine all new fish before introducing them to your display tank and look into keeping a cleaner shrimp or two to help keep your saltwater fish free of pests and disease.This is a general introduction into the three main saltwater aquarium types: Fish Only, FOWLR (Fish Only with Live Rock) and the Reef Tank Setup.
