just wonderin about saltwater tanks

My favorite saltwater fish is the yellow tang. I really want one but I heard they can get ich pretty easily. I only have a 29 gallon tank too so I couldn't house many fish. I'll probably not get salt fish this time but I do want to get some sometime. Can someone tell me all the pros and cons to saltwater fish? thanks! it will be greatly appriciated!!!!!!

Yellow tangs are not ich magnets but they can not be put in a 29 gallon tank either. Cons is SW tank is more work. Pros is you reap what you sow. I had a few FW tanks over the years and will never go back. I still have a 5 gal hex with a betta.
