The only thing I can add is that the first time you go skiing you are probably lucky to get back with any dignity intact. With practice comes understanding and techniques that allow you to progress. Reef keeping is no different. Nobody wakes up one day and finds they can grow corals and keep difficult fish, they progress towards it. It is human nature to be in a hurry and want to take short cuts, or believe you are the lucky one, but that in the end punishes you thru losses and confusion. Lose enough expensive fish or coral and out of the hobby you go thru frustration. The frustration comes from not listening to advice on what to keep initially and jumping the gun to fish/coral you will not be successful with as a newbie. We are all trying to help get you all over that hump in the road.
