Newbie to saltwater

Hello. I am starting my first saltwater tank soon. I have no idea on what I would like to start with. I would think a reef tank would be way to hard to start with. I am going to be reading the marine tank section of DK encyclopedia of Aquarium & Pondfish. But any self taught pointers would be great.

What fish are good for beginners?
What size tank would be a good idea?
Basics, ya know??!

Thank you in advance!

The best thing is to study the fish then decide on the size of tank. Get the largest tank you can afford. This is a list of fish that they consider beginner Beginner Fish: Tropical Fish for Beginners in Saltwater Aquariums
