Startin a new tank!

I'm looking to start up a 29 gallon FOWLR for my first salt water tank, I've watched about every video on YouTube there is and just want any pointers that could help! I know it's a small tank I just want it to kinda test thing out, and then hopefully I'll move up to a bigger reef tank. HELP ME OUT GUYS

Hi I am also very new to this hobby. I have a 25g reef tank and the only thing I wish I had done now is start bigger. When people said bigger is easier I did wonder how that could be but now I know.

On the flip side the tank I have an Aquael ReefMax (check YouTube) and its great for beginners as its an all in one plug and play tank. However I have found it limits me to what I can and can't do. So I am already thinking on a much bigger scale. Just need to convince the girlfriend to surrender a large portion of the house to me.

Good luck and keep us posted.

Rob
