Second Chance

So i had a 20 gallon SW tank about 4 or 5 years ago and it failed because i just jumped into it. i wanted to try and put up a 10 gallon SW as somewhat of a training session on SW. im much better with water parameters now since ive had a 125g for about 3 years. my inquiry in all this babbling is how do i start and where do i go from there? i really want it to be a stunning little mini reef

Thanks all

First, understand that the smaller volume of water you have, the more difficult it is to keep stable.

I'm guessing you have the tank already. Do you have other equipment as well.?
