I'm 100% confused as to why you'd say this thread has left freshwater. I'm telling you that drilled tanks make awesome freshwater tanks, explaining why, and the benefits not to mention telling you I run them on freshwater tanks. But so be it if that's your decision. I think you can handle it and the only limiting factor is not being confident in yourself. I think you can handle it no problem yet I've never met you, it's that simple of a set up. The benefits are so numerous that I will NEVER buy another tank not set up liek this.

I appreciate the words of encouragement, it means a lot to me. The problem at this time though is more about space than anything. Being in the midst of grad school in an apartment means I would need to find a way to move after a couple years and the bigger the setup the more it would complicate matters.

I'm thinking if I go for something on the smaller side for now to get back into the hobby it could lead to a better large tank down the road. I used to run a nice 55g freshwater but decided to leave it behind when I made a major move several years ago.

At this point, I am kind of interested in a nano reef or other small salt setup in like a 14g Biocube or other that may work well for a beginner. I feel it may be easier to deal with if/when I need to move it. A freshwater would be nice too, but salt has really piqued my interest.

I'd go with a nano cube of sorts while in "transition". Light weight, easy to care for and just pick it up when it's time to move on. Oceanic Bio-Cubes are decent, JBJ cubes are very easy to upgrade, Current brand cubes seem to have disappeared so be careful picking up one of those, and finally the RedsSea cube is excellent for starting a mini reef but the price reflects that.

If you have the funds and want a neat set up while at school check out Tenecor built in tanks. They generally are giant all in one style tanks that the new "All in 1 cubes" have copied. They have chambers built right in for filters and have pumps built in out of site for pumping the water. All you need is light.
