New to salt water

Hi, I am new to the forum and new to salt water tanks. I have had many freshwater tanks but decided it was time to move up. I'm looking for advice as to the steps to take to get my tank ready. I intend to have a reef setup.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.
