saltwater fish for dummies is the best "newbie" book on the market.......if 30 bucks is to much then you're in the wrong hobbie.

Search the web. There are plenty of start-up guides also. But no way can someone can just give you the info you need.

You were joking, right? OK, you got us on that one.

okay i know there is a lot of info but first of all i dont have any resources to fish books because there is only 2 lfs around where i live i was just wondering about basic stuff and i really dont know what live rock is , i was thinking about a clownfish some books ive read at my schools library siad they get lke 4 inches [common] i would like a small tank like 10 or a 20 something fairly small i would even be satisfied with like shromp and all that good stuff like stuff that doesnt need a lot of care if ya know what i mean
i have experience in fs and a little bit of brackish with my old puffer that died a while ago if anybody has like any suggestions for BEGGINER fish or whatever that would be good i guess ill look on the web for info..

Go to the local library and see if they have a copy of that book. Check it out for a few weeks then go back and check it out again for another few weeks. Get in the scientific literature and look for stuff on ornamental marine fish in general as well as articles regarding the species you want to try.
Try the search button. I hear it gives great results.

its best to do some research. As previously suggested buy a book about setting up and maintaining a salt water aquarium. This way you know what your getting yourself into..

This is your official warning. SW tanks coast alot, a 30gal will cost over $1000, probably even used. I made the mistakes, and Im starting all over again. I recommend Michael Paletta's The New Marine Aquarium.
Don't get burned.
