I'd start with Freshwater if I were you. If you do start with Salt, take it SLOW and ask lots of questions here.

Do you want corals eventually or just fish?

If any amount of copper gets into the tank, you'll lose all of you invertebrates, including most corals.

Corals are just another animal, some like them some don't. They demand excellent water condtion and a great deal of patience. they're generally expensive too - especially when you're starting off and killing $30-$40 corals.

125 gallons is a good starter tank. It's big enough that changes in water quality can be detected before everything dies. The bigger the better to start.

You'll most likely want live rock whether you're going Fish-Only or not.
