you're best bet is to browse or search the "Getting Started" forum here as there are literally hundreds of this same question. You need to decide what type of tank and inhabitants you'd like, then investigate the equipment you need to sustain that, then research (I suggest buying a good book to read up on everything) how to setup, cycle, stabalize the system and water parameters and then start adding livestock VERY slowly as things develop over time...
Any specific questions, obviously folks here can help and with any other advice but you first need to decide on what you would like for a saltwater setup....
hope that helps as a starting point.
