When venturing into saltwater for the first time, it can be easy to see the more complicated equipment or testing as the biggest mentality shift. In practice and with good guidance, these hurdles usually end up being a lot less difficult than they seemed at first glance. Often the challenge that sneaks up on the new reef tank owner who has been conditioned to buy schools of fish in their freshwater hobby, is that most reef fish are very competitive with conspecifics and any other similar species. This makes compatibility one of our most common debates around the shop. Which fish can go together, and why? A few simple rules will get you pretty far, but there are always exceptions. In this episode: Ben, Amy, and Charles discuss saltwater compatibility, what works, and what to avoid.
