Marine setup

I have up to recently kept tropical fish but have decided that I wont to move over to a marine tank, I haven't got much knowledge in this and would welcome any advice on the whole thing. I haven't brought a tank yet or any equipment but have been looking at Red Sea aquariums but not sure what other equipment I will need if so any!

I am completely open to all ideas and suggestions.

If you get a red sea aquarium you wont need anything else to start your tank except little things such as a refractometer, salt mix, test kits etc. That and the biocube make marine aquariums 10x easier.

Thanks for that, is the Red Sea aquarium one of the better ones on the market?

Would a chiller be required as I have been looking on YouTube and everyone seems to mention them

Coralife BioCube Aquarium

Try finding one on sale (usually at $260) or might be one on craigslist.
