    Welcome Marino!

    And congratulations! Once you go salt you won't go back! ;-)
    We need a bit more info on what you're thinking of before we can really assist you. What size tank and inhabitants do you want? A nano? (small tank) A big tank? How much can you budget for it? What do you want to keep? Fish only? (not for me!!), fish and corals? Even within theses categories there are varying levels of difficulty.

    If I can give you one piece of advice - spend as much time needed on the research and planning phase. Get on to google and look at some of the big reefing sites and check out their "Tanks of the month" (TOTM) to get an idea of what you are aiming for in the distant future. If a small tank is your think you should have a look at Nano-Reef.com - The source for nano reef aquarium information otherwise Reef Central Online Community is a good one.

    Please ask any questions you have at the forefront of your mind - no question is a stupid one :) We've all been beginners at some stage - some of us (myself included!) still are very new to the hobby.
