Salt Water Tanks & Moving

I move every couple of years. I really want to start a salt water tank but the idea of moving it and potentially killing fish/coral puts me right off. Should I wait until I settle down until I start a salt water tank or are there any frequent movers here who can boost my confidence?

Moved to Saltwater and Reef - Getting Started.

In my experience, it is much more difficult to move SW tanks successfully than it is to move FW tanks. You may want to wait until you are more settled down before you start a SW tank, but that is just my opinion.

2nd vote for waiting, alot of work to move a tank once let alone every couple of years. When you have a place you are gonna stay in then give a SW tank a go..
