The last and the most important point to keep a close look on is the health of your marine life. Keep in touch with the fishes and other organisms every day to check if they are suffering from any illness of not. If the fishes do not eat or do not move properly. You need a vet at that point.
Filtration: There are many different types of filtration in this hobby, some better than others, but the 3 main components of filtration are mechanical, chemical and biological. Mechanical filtration is the removal of large particles in the water column through a foam filter or filter floss. Chemical filtration is the use of activated carbon to remove harmful chemicals from the water. Biological filtration uses porous media to attract beneficial aerobic bacteria to colonize and allow for the nitrogen cycle to take place. When choosing a filter, you should select one strong enough to filter your water 5-10 times per hour. So for a 50 gallon aquarium, you want a filter that pumps 250-500 gallons per hour.
