I know you guys prolly get a lot of this but...
I think i'm going to start a 20 gallon saltwater tank thats planted. I've had tanks of that size before but never saltwater and nothing planted. I need a couple good articles to get me going in that direction.

I would say, go for a bigger tank if you can. It easier to maintain water quality that way. As for planted, do you mean lots of macro algea or planted with corals? If corals most need a lot of light and an established tank, as for the macro algea the too need light but probably not as strict.
