Honestly if your really wanting to get into reefing. Do it right the first time around because you'll regret it until you fix it lol. I would say either empty the tank and drill it or find one that is drilled or can be drilled. From there on just start piecing it together to fully suit what you want. This will spread your total cost out, give you plenty of research time (very important in SW), and lastly you won't be "settling" for anything.

Haha... My BF would not allow me to get a bigger tank. So a 60 is as big as he allows me to go. I've tried to get him to budge but he's not giving in. I've tried everything. No luck. I went from a ten gallon, to a twenty gallon and my 60 is it. So I can't go bigger. Lol

When I first was intrested I bought the saltwater book for dummies! Currently retreading it now after a few months of having my tank I understand more. IMO it was a good start, you may want to look into it

That's a good way to learn and even by talking to your LFS employees

You can check out bulkreefsupply.com too. They offer great videos on a lot of their products which will help give you an idea of what it is and how it works for SW equipment. YouTube is also a great location to learn from. Just remember there's more then one way to do it right so except all the different methods and opinions until you feel comfortable making up your own mind on how you feel about certain methods.

But if you go to petco or pet smart or walmart I would not even bother to ask someone who works there unless you really trust them
