A nano.

5-30 gallons is a great starter tank.

Bigger is always better. A larger water column is more forgiving towards mistakes.

Agree bigger is going to be easier to maintain but I always think you should check out what kind of fish you really want to keep, then that will tell you what isle tank and equipment you'll need. Also, do you want fish only or reef? That will tell you what kind of lighting you need and filtration etc...
