Can I use this....

I want to buy a Marineland Eclipse 29 gallon aquarium. It comes with the eclipse hood/filter and I am not sure what else. I was wondering if I could use that for a saltwater tank. I know I would need more supplies but just wondering if I could use the basics that it comes with. Thanks

Edit:
12-Gallon Glass Aquarium, Eclipse 1 System, 18" Fluorescent Lamp, Rite-Size "G" Filter Cartridge, BIO-Blend™ Tropical Fish Food, BIO-Safe™ Tap Water Conditioner, BIO-Coat™ Stress Defense, Beginners Fishkeeping Guide. Certified Flow: 150 GPH.

Yes I am going to try. I am not sure that I am going to make it a saltwater. I want to so bad but I am not sure if I will be able to on my budget. With the cost of live rock, a protein skimmer, and all.

This hobby can become a quite expensive, especially for folks who don't do their homework. In the beginning time is more important than money. Get yourself a good book like the Conscientous Marine Aquarist and see what you are getting yourself into. You don't need tons of money to have a successful SW tank.

Believe me I have all the time in the world. Being disabled (I can lift weight and am not handicapped) I do not have a job so I am looking for something to keep me busy. I hope everything works out. If not I can always at least make it freshwater
