One thing I think everyone seems to be in agreement on is, the bigger the tank, the easier it is to maintain consistant water quality. It you are considering a 29 in the future, save yourself the $$, skip the 10 and go right for the 29.

Yeah, depending on your financial situation, spending more to get started will save you a massive headache in the days to come. I'm by no means implying that you will screw up or anything, its just tougher to maintain excellent water conditions in smaller aquariums.

Personally I wouldnt get a 10g SW tank. You can only have 2in of fish (one clown ). I have a 30g and I love its size. Im currently building a 150g tank and the 30g will become the sump with LR.

You will enjoy SW much more the larger the tank.

I agree. The start up cost btween a 10gal and a 29gal will not differ that much. Go for the biger tank. Just those extra few gallons will allow you to keep a couple more fish and some that are not possible in a 10gal tank.
