    Welcome to the forum Marine1983.

    Let's start with what size tank do you want? A nano or a 3ft or 4ft etc.

    Then what do you want to keep in the tank, just fish or do you want to have some corals as well?

    Marine1983,take it from a noobie, go as big as your budget will allow. The smaller Nano tanks can be quite demanding and unforgiving on beginners.

    And it is heartbreaking and expensive to see your creatures not thriving.

    Ask loads of questions and you will learn and have loads of fun in this awesome hobby.
