New in the nieghborhood

Hello to all. I'm getting back ingo the aquarium hobby after about a 25 year hiatus. I had saltwater aquariums back then but things sure are different now. I got back in by accident really. A close family friend passed away and his wife asked me us to take the tank. I think she was afraid she'd kill it. Its a small 26 or 28 gallon bow front. It's actually a real nice reef tank with a few fish some crabs a couple cleaner shrimp and a dwarf angle. I got it move, thanks in good part to the knowledge from this site, thank you very much. Everything seems to be doing well. I will definitely be looking here a lot as I have never cared for inverts before this so the whole coral thing (tree and mushroom) is still making me nervous. Mostly the feeding aspect I think and how they behave. Every time they change appearance I'm worried they are dieing. All I know for sure is this little tank has given me the bug again, took like 2 seconds. I have already been perusing for a much bigger used tank. By the way I have a 50 long in the basement that hasn't had water in it for over 25 years, think it would still hold water? That might keep me busy till I find a bigger one.
