Here is what I hope to be a useful reference to a lot of frequently asked questions.

The intentions behind creating this FAQ are twofold: 1) to provide basic information to newcomers so that they can ask informed questions, and 2) to provide a reference source for common information to the regulars.

If you have a question that you think is common, or if you're new and need some background info about brackish aquariums in general, please spend a few minutes looking through this FAQ.
