Fish only is just that, fish and nothing else. A reef tank is generally set up with LR and contains reef inverts like shrimp, corals, clams, anemones etc. A reef tank would require a higher quality and wattage of lighting whereas with FO you can use standard NO fluorescent lights. This is just one difference, I'm sure others will point out some more.

Thanks, I think I'd like to have a reef tank. I just ordered the mentioned book on amazon and it should be here first week of April and then I'll get reading up on my stuff. I'm excited to learn about all of this!

If you are thinking of keeping corals another good book is "Aquarium Corals" by Eric Borneman excellent reference for corals and coral reef tanks.

Do you're research on the fish you mentioned. From what I read and understand puffers and box fish are not too reef friendly.
