Advice: The first and most important lesson I learned in saltwater aquaria: Be patient, grasshopper.
Find an honest, experienced LFS which specializes in saltwater, join a local club, and seek advice constantly. Start with as large a tank as you can manage...that will only delay the desire to upgrade!

About Yourself: We started saltwater aquaria in 2007 with a brthday gift from my spouse: a 95G Oceanic Wave reef tank. Within months, we were looking for a larger tank! The 95G now houses my wife's breeding seahorses, (Hippocampus Reidi) and a nice collection of zoanthids, palys and other safe corals for the seahorses...
