I'm going to start a saltwater tank + 2 QT tanks, I'm looking at a main tank of 150 gallon the QT tanks will be 20 gallons ea.

My main tank will have LR and some fish one day Smile (no rush this will be my dream tank even if its takes me a year to set this up )

please give me help on what I will need to start this off, power heads, filters ect ect for both tanks please, I'm new to saltwater but have 2 tropical tanks for about 6 years or so..
Thank for any help people
regards

Your questions are broad and it's beyond the scope of this forum to teach you all the basics of this hobby my friend. Please begin by reading the various articles and stickies on this site and then come back with some specific questions... make your first purchase a good book, try THE CONSICENTIOUS MARINE AQUARIST by Fenner, here's a link to good books, scroll down for marine references... your research will lead to success:

I like this site from reef corner lots of good beginner info

http://www.reefcorner.com/reef%20keeping_101.htm

saltwater aquariums 101 its a online class you get a email everyday for a certain amount of time covering several topics on starting, stocking, feeding and other information all you do is sign up for the online class and a weekly news letter with aquarium help or info
