My son started with a 55 gallon salt tank. It then QUICKLY changed to a 67 gallon. Now it has been upgraded to a 90 gallon. All the info we have is the bigger the tank the easier it is to maintain. I would advise getting a 55 and be done. You can have a beautiful reef tank with plenty of room for fish and skip the upgrades in size.
This hobby is addictive and expensive but when you get it up and running it is SOOO worth it.
Just remember be patient. If you rush the cycle and stocking you will be kicking yourself in the teeth. Trust me. Expensive lesson for my son. And regular maintenance is a MUST.
Enjoy your new adventure. You are going to love this.
