Ya if you can't go 75 I would probably go 40 breeder because of the 18" width, but a 55 is 4' long. I'm 13 too!!!! And have 150 gallon tank on the second floor...... My moms really happy with the weight lol. As for inverts, do you want corals? Of you want to be able to keep high light demanding corals like SPS you're going to need really strong light. Which can cost $$$$$$. Anemones need just the same light. Also, I would recommend a CUC of hermits, snails, brittle/serpent stars, and maybe even some conchs (they're really really cool). Also some pep shrimp and cleaner shrimp would be awesome.

Keep an eye on Craigslist for deals. You might find a great deal. I got a 75g acrylic, with built-in filtration and the stand/canopy for $150.

OK thanks. I have been keeping an eye on craigslist, so pretty soon a good deal should be coming around sometime.

How much $$$ would we be talking about with a strong light?

You had asked for articles on starting out. Have you checked our AA Articles section yet?

Stock list and tips for maintaining your SW tank (STARTING OUT) is a good place to start.

Good luck, have fun and most of all ENJOY!
