BTW, if you read the OP, they want so recommending a larger tank doesn't seem that unreasonable.
No idea on sportbikes thing as I have never even looked at them, just saying that a larger tank is not required and that a smaller tank is fine for beginners given that the proper research is done. Here's an example....I started a 20g as my first salty tank which is still running today with no problems except for a few aiptasia, and I am only 14.
