Noob here with questions to ask

I am interested in getting started a saltwater reef tank. I had a chiclid tank years ago so I am somewhat familiar with maintaining an aquarium, though I know a saltwater tank is a whole different beast. Let me also preface this by saying I am in marine science as my career, so I understand things such as water quality, nitrogen cycles, etc. I don't want to start out spending a lot of money, and sometimes I am forced to be gone from my house for 3 or 4 days at a time. I am interested in a kit I think, as this looks to be the cheapest venue as of now. Here is one I have been eyeing.


Let me know what you think about this specific tank. I want to buy the upgraded tank with metal halide lights. Any other advice you can give for a noob getting started and having something nice without spending a whole lot of money would be appreciated.

Kind of small but it looks OK. You might want to post questions on nano forum. You`ll be limited on what you can put in your tank.


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