Quoted from frenchmarky:

Absolutely true story... I haven't had an aquarium since I was a teenager (tetras, teeny catfish and little teeny frogs), but...
5 days ago I went out to the front lawn to water a couple of spots that were getting brown, and I just happened to spot this teeny little one-cup fish bowl under one of my trees next to the trunk, in the shade, that somebody had abandoned. Who knows how long it was sitting there, getting sprinkled by my automatic sprinklers with chlorinated water, and in 100 degree weather here in So Calif. But the little fish in it was still alive! So I put it in a bigger bowl with water I let dechlorinate for 24 hours first. Two days later it jumped out when I *just* happened to be glancing at it and saved it again. I mean it could've died the first two days that way a hundred times and I would have never known it. (I should have put some kind of cover over it.) This is one lucky fish I tell ya, if he was a cat he'd be down to only a couple of lives. So I went out and got it this small aquarium kit with filter & 5w heater and the other goodies. He has totally pepped up back to normal and is swimming all over the place, before that he was acting sick and just hanging around the top and not eating anything. I found out it's a betta and it's quite pretty. I would never have gone out and bought a fish and an aquarium but I felt compelled to rescue the poor little guy.

Awesome, looks like the perfect tank for a BETA
Change 25% water monthly and feed some good food and it should do well

Quoted from radium:

Saltwater can be easy if you don’t get caught up in the modern insanity. You really don’t need most of the equipment being sold now. The most important things for me are good quality live rock, good flow, heavy feeding, big skimmer, and no sand. Just like I did in the 90s!
My lights are 8x80W T5. They will grow coral like weeds and are much cheaper than the new LED fixtures.
I also quarantine all my fish and coral. They are too expensive not to. Fish get treated with copper power (or chloroquine phosphate), metronidazole, and praziquantel. They spend at least six weeks in quarantine. Corals get dipped and remain in quarantine for at least 75 days before they can come in the house.
Main tank maintenance: change filter socks every three days, clean glass whenever, clean skimmer weekly, feed fish nightly. That’s it. If the system has coral I will usually do water changes but only to replace trace elements.
Simple is best!
