Anyone have any advice or maybe some links that would give me some basic knowledge on saltwater tanks? I've never had a saltwater tank before, though I have done research in the past when I thought I'd be setting up a saltwater tank in the near future. But that was awhile back so I'm a bit rusty on the details now.
I think I want to start with a 55 gallon tank as I've heard that's a good size to start out at, being a bigger volume of water and therefore less unstable. I haven't decided on fish yet - obviously I want to start out with some very hardy, easy to care for species. I just want a basic setup (no corals) to learn from, then when I'm more experienced I want to get into more 'advanced' stuff like having a reef tank and more difficult fish/invert species.
Thanks in advance!

Thanks! Yes, I'll do some research into FO/FOWLR. I know I've read before about how live rock can be bad in some cases as you might get creatures that eat your corals, or you might get anemones that grow quickly, etc.
