thinking about trying salt

i have 2 20-gallons freshwaters and have a 5 gallo sitting empty
i was considering trying a saltwater tank with it
how much more complicated is it?
i've been doing fresh since april and things seem pretty good
is it too small a tank?
should i wait to get more experience?
is it that much more complicated?

any help will be HUGE

saltwater is doable in a 5 gallon but it will take strict disapline to keep it heathy. so read, read and read some more. use your favorite search engine and search for "nano reefs" that should give ya lots of great info.
