Wanting to start a temperate marine tank

I'd like to start a temperate marine tank, and have no idea where to start. What are some dos and donts starting one. How does it differ from a tropical tank?

I'd like to do this because I live near the coast in northern California and do lots of freediving/spearfishing/abalone diving, and I see lots of things out there i'd like to scoop up for a tank.

Will def be a specialized tank and will require Aomori strong independent research. There are some in the forums that are running similar specialized tanks. I think I have an article on one I found just forgot to post it. Give me a little am ill look.

Jacob Dixon’s Puget Sound biotope is a cool as it is awesome

Hopefully this is helpful. You'll just have to figure out what temp it'll need to stay at and so on to see if you can put things together, which should be pretty easy but the temperature will need to be watched to see if CA indoor's will need a chiller or not to keep it where you want it to be.

I would need a chiller go sure. I read something about needin to create algae blooms to feed inhabitants. This sounds like something that I might not be ready for. I only have experience with a 25# sw tank with heart predators. As much as I want a Goldwater it sounds like I would probably fail. About how much $ Would I be looking at for a 55# cold water with no fish
