Fresh water to salt water, what to buy?

Ok guys I need your advise I want to have a salt water tank as well as my 350litre fresh water one.
The thing is I dont know what to put in it apart from some nice fish. I have read up on LR this seems like a good idea. Can I put coral in among the rock? What equipment would you recommend? I want to do this correctly the first time as I have a habit of buying without thinking and then living to reget it.
The tank I have been looking to buy is a 260litre one.

Advice always welcome!!!!

Yes, LR and sand are very important to the health of your tank and critters. I don't know too much about corals, but they do grown on LR and can be purchased on small pieces if LR, or you can attach them yourself.

First, you will have to decide if you want a reef or FOWLR tank. Then we can give you a better idea of what equipment you will need.
Age is relative, you are only as old as you act....of course, this works in reverse....

Questions loved, heeded advice greatly appreciated!

Live sand, LR and a skimmer to start with. A refugium or sump would be a great help also.


You can view many of my fish and corals in my photo albums in my profile.
