Utica plans on building a saltwater aquarium when downtown is revitalized! It will be the largest in the whole wide world & will draw tourists by the thousands from around the globe! Grants are in the works now!

Just wait & see!

How hard are they to have these days? I was kind of thinking about one. Does anyone have one and care to share some advice?
They are actually easier to have now then they were when I was a kid in the 1980's and had one! The initial cost in setting one up is a bit higher than a freshwater aquarium, though you probably already knew this. The filtration options are much better now than the old-school options I used to have like the undergravel filter and the standard filter that hung on the back of the tank. A fish-only tank is probably the easiest set-up to have, and my easiest set-up was a tank with damselfish (hardy) and live rock. Triggerfish are also hardy, but are aggressive and generally do not do well with tankmates and will eat any invertebrates!

Reef tanks are pretty popular, too and some species of sea anemone and corals are relatively hardy, at least for their type. They are interesting when they are kept with clownfish and some invertebrates like shrimp and such.

I would recommend getting some books on the topic of saltwater tanks, visiting websites, and finding a good aquarium store with people working there who know what they are talking about. It has been literally YEARS since I left Utica so I don't know offhand if one exists there.

Just don't go to reefcentral.com . I was banned there because I spoke my mind against one of the mods (BrianD). He loves to throw a ban stick on anyone he doesn't like or on subjects he's offended with. I really let him have it. It felt good to give him a piece of my mind. Ah well, he's a p*ssy anyways.

Wow, thanks for the advice, that was very informative. I would most likely do fish with live rock. someone told me live rock is the best thing to have in the tank because of all the beneficial bacteria that would grow on it. I kind of like the grouper fish too, maybe them and a couple triggers.
Well your out of luck. I don't think you can buy live coral anymore.

I said live rock, not live coral. I don't want to waste money trying to keep corals alive anyway.
You'd be surprised there are easy corals can keep - even for a beginner like yourself. corals. Go to website I posted above.
