Actually, the smaller you go in the marine aquarium hobby, the more work you are going to have to put in. The reason behind this is that there is less water volume if you make a mistake. For example, if you make a mistake in a 10 liter tank, the effects will be much worse than if you made the same mistake in a 1200 liter tank.

+1 it's going to be an expensive process but the bigger the tank, the easier it is to correct mistakes. be prepared because a barely functioning marine aquarium could get you a state of the art freshwater tank.
