Fresh to Salt

Hello all,
I have had fresh water tanks for years and have been successful with them. I love breeding fancy guppies and watching my plecos and Balas grow to great sizes but I am now interested in moving on to trying my hand at salt water. What size tank would you recommend for a first timer and what breeds are good for beginners?

With salt, the bigger the better

A 40 breeder or a 75 would both be awesome choices for tanks. Skip the 55g tho, the dimensions are awful.

Blennies, Gobies, and clowns are excellent beginner fish to have.

I have heard that the larger are easier because levels dont change as rapidly. Thank you for your advice.
