Starting a Saltwater Tank

I had had the idea of turning my 10 gallon freshwater into a saltwater tank, now before i start thinking and getting into deep research is there anything I could even get in a 10 gallon?

There are a lot of cool inverts and small fish that could go in there for sure. That said small sw tanks tend to be more difficult to keep stable than large ones so it would be a bit of a challenge but definitely doable

I started with a 10 and it was definitely more testing and making sure everything did well in it but I don't do nearly as much testing or maintenance on the 40 I have now.

I will say though in a 10 gallon doing a large wc to fix a problem is a lot easier than doing one in a big tank to fix it.
