You would be money and time ahead to not do a SW aquarium just now. It is a hobby that really requires the best you can give. It is inherently expensive. It simply cannot be done cheaply. You will be unsuccessful and disappointed. Take some time while you save up the cash to read and research. With a good background of knowledge you will able to pull it off at least as inexpensively as possible.

I also agree. Do the saving up part and research, though, it is a great realm to get into! You'll probably want to wait till you can start with at least a 55 gallon. That way it will take longer before you really "haveto" upgrade, and believe me, it won't take long before you have tank envy!

SW aquarium is pretty delicated, both money and time, UGF seems to give lots of problem to lots of people that why we recommend to remove it! But it is really up to you where you want to take our advices or not, but it seems all the advices that we gave you are just the basic requirement to keep a SW aquarium though, not to mention like Protein skimmers, LR/LS and may be other things, and cheapest fishes and hardy you can get probably damsels? like $3.00 from LFS.
