new here!

hello all! I am new to this forum and I am looking to share some of my knowledge slash expirience. I am no where near as seasoned as some of the people on here, but I have been keeping freshwater fish my whole life. I currently only have a 29 gallon planted tank with an assortment of community fish. I also currently work at a small privately owned aquarium store. now, although I would say I know a fair amount about freshwater aquaria, I know next to nothing about saltwater. I was hired as a freshwater specialist, so there isn't really any need for me to lean about saltwater in terms of my job, but I am going off to college next year and I think I would like to take a ten gallon saltwater aquarium with me. unfortunately, a ten gallon is as large as I can bring... what can I stock it with? what would be the ideal set up? in saltwater do I still worry about ph and such, or is salinity the main concern?
thank you!

Welcome to AA! Enjoy!
Please don't forget about the toxins in some corals (like zoas and palythoas)
