No worries. From Wales Wrexham.
And yes clowns will limit your options.
I'm a tropical guy myself so I don't know a great deal about saltwater but research is the key.
Have you any idea if you want a reef, or a fowlr
(fish only with live rock)
With saltwater you can get away without the need of a filter. The live rock becomes your filter system along with a protein skimmer to remove bio films etc.
Or you can run something like a canister filter with live rock in it.
Check out the saltwater forum here on AA and check out the stickies etc that have been written to help you out.
Good luck on your saltwater journey.
