Cool Hello

Well, where to start. I am currently in the Army and have been since 2004. I am on my second deployment and I am in Mosul, Iraq. I am stationed out of Fort Stewart, Ga and I have a 12 gallon and a 75 gallon fish tank in my storage unit waiting for some other crazy set up. Being that I am in the military and I am quite often gone for several days if not weeks I am looking for a very low maintenance aquarium set up. I have had several aquariums over the last four years. I would really like to set up a salt water tank but everyone that I have talked to has told me that you can't be gone for long at all if there is no one to take care of your tank. I am interested in converting the seventy five gallon tank to salt water on my own, or possibly even a freshwater tank with a refugium(sp?). The other tank I was thinking of setting up with bumblebee gobies or possibly something very colorful like Neon Tetras. I have not done nearly enough shopping to know many different kinds of fish and this is my first honest attempt to educate myself beyond asking the people at the pet store. All help and ideas are greatly appreciated!! Thank you all.
