Question by Ryan S: How hard is it to maintain a saltwater fish tank?
I’ve recently gotten very interested in having/caring for pet fish. I had a Betta for the past 13 months, it just died however. So now I’m thinking about looking into getting a saltwater tank, but I’m not sure how much maintenance they require. How difficult is it to keep a saltwater tank? What advice would you give?
The main thing I’m worried about is cleaning the tank. My betta tank seemed to acquire algae really fast and I would end up having to spend like 3-4 hours cleaning it every couple of weeks. How hard is it to keep a saltwater tank clean? Are there any types of saltwater fish or plants that help reduce algae buildup? Thanks for your help!

there are live fish that will help clean the tank but really, a saltwater tank is beautiful but certainly a commitment, yes, it is difficult to maintain, especially if something goes wrong like an inbalance in the water.
