    No to low maintenance aquarium?

    This is a question for all the aquarium guys we have here - what is a good no or low maintenance aquarium setup? Would I be better to go salt or freshwater? I'd like to keep it under 50 gallons.

    After I run my nitro rc, must I use after run oil, and lubricate the engine and put shock oil on the shocks. Right now, I am not doing big jumps or bashing. Also do I need to drain the fuel from my fuel tank when i am done driving. Thanks

    I was wondering what is good practice after a run? Or a mud run? Are there any good maintenance kits out there? What is good to do after a good run? What spare parts would you suggest to keep on hand? I have a LST XXL Thanks
