    Not too much different.
    More tests some additives, some extra equipment.
    Just a little extra work.
    The start up cost is what gets you.
    Gotta add livestock slowly or something is gonna mess up!
    Always use RO water to mix your salt in or you will always have issues.
    Figure out what kind of tank you want from the start, reef, predator, fish only......

    Depending on the kind of angelfish that may mean no coral.
    A Tang is almost a must in salt, they are great algae grazers and keep the rock pretty clean!

    Lionfish are bottomless pits and eat everything. But they are purdy. Lion fu manchu are beautiful but don't swim a lot
