Advice: Read all you can about the setup and husbandry of a saltwater tank you can before buying anything. Set out a goal for your tank knowing that it will change but at least have a plan. What kind of fish, coral etc. etc. Then buy the equipment you need to maintain the critters in your plan. As hard as it is going slowly will help to create the best tank you can from your plans. Have a great time with it as it is an addiction and very costly.
