Hello! New to forum and saltwater aquariums!

Hello, So I've had freshwater aquariums in my life time and i can say i have a bit of experience with them! but i have always wanted a saltwater aquarium because of how awesome the fish and corals look! So i am looking to start my first and with all the research I've done, the best way is to start a FOWLR! and than later on make it to a reef! So, I still haven't set my self on a tank sizes! So i need you experienced broskis to help me out choose a size. I was thinking of a 30gallon tank, have the room for it and it aint that big that will hurt my wallet... So what do you guys suggest!And does anyone know any sites or vendors who sell tank kits!!! and equipment. Thanks for your time! cheers!

I would go for a 29 or a 20 long because it has a good floor plan to work with aquascape. If you can afford a 55 or 75 go for that.

Bigger is said to be easier to maintain and you can keep more in it ^_^

Bigger is always better. When it comes to easier to work with, cubes are easier due to the width. So the 65 cube wins hands down.
