Maintenance on salt water fish tank?

We spent several years with regular, fresh water fish tanks, took a break though for quite awhile. Just curious what the maintenance schedule is on a salt water tank, aside from daily feeding obviously, ex. cleaning, testing, et cetera. I know the fish are expensive, so proper care and know how would be a must. Just don't know if it's a big undertaking. Anyone have salt water fish experience?

  • I have always wanted one, but i am afraid it would be a lot of work. of course the most beautiful fish are salt water ones. they are expensive too. i guess i will stick with fresh water. i love angel fish and neon tetras. i hope you find a real answer. lol sorry i couldn't help
