You could, but the problem with smaller tanks is that they require a lot of attention. If nitrates go bad, then it happens really quick. Same thing with SG, if i evaporate just a little, then the Salinity is going to be very incorrect, so you have to pay very close attention to those details.
Yes, it's far less expensive, but there are more things that can go wrong very quickly... "the solution to pollution is dilution"
If you do decide to go small... feel free to ask anything, i'd be more then happy to assist in anyway possible, but i'd say go with a 55g or something around that size. They are great starter tanks. If you were closer, I could give you a tank (55g) for free... if you don't mind a bit of travel, the offer is on the table.
