I spent a year taking care of my dad's failed attempt at a home reef.
my take away is this - if you don't wanna setup a proper quarantine tank rotation, stick to just coral. otherwise, you'll be fighting disease forever. there's no such thing as a disease free fish from the local fish store. at least, not at the tier of local store we were shopping at.
growing coral is definitely on my list of things to do again. coral & crustaceans. I'm good on the salt fish bit, at least until I have a large enough place to setup all the extra tanks needed to keep everyone happy & healthy.

If something appears too good to be true, it probably is.
