I've been doing research every day for about the past three years, and I'm just setting up my first salt water tank now!

I would recommend holding off on setting anything up now and researching until you KNOW that you know everything there is to know about the type of setup you want. Doing that much research will help eliminate any confusion and give you peace of mind that you're doing everything right.

Good luck!!

Just saw this thread I am starting my first salty as well, best thing to dk is read read read, I get bouts of insomnia so used those to read a lot also pick the brains of lfs ppl if they have the time. Be patient salt is a lot more then fresh to start up as well so to make it easier piece it out while your reading up.
