for the most part yes , but that don't mean you need to go out and break the bank either

for someone who is just starting to get into the hobby a 30 gal would be a good choice to start with
you can get by with the basics
a good hob filter
skimmer
heater
2 450 power heads
and a decent light
a sump would be nice but not a necessity to start out
remember you can grow into a bigger tank over time learn the basics first

no 2 tanks are identical since every rock scape is not the same
so it's hard to tell , when I said 2 450PH it was meant as a starting point to build off of
in my 37 bow front I have a 250 in the center and a 450 on either end
rock work along with shape of tank and also size depends how much flow you need
hope that made sense

I think this article it a bit dated? I don't think people did wet/dry anymore! It also doesn't mention natural filtration. I run a successful 55g reef with no mechanical filtration, just loads of live rock, 2 powerheads and a skimmer
