Going to take the plunge this weekend and pick up a tank and start setting it up. I'd like to start for the first year or so with nothing but corals, and some smaller inverts.

Are there any online resources that you've found particularly useful over the years? Based on the information I see online regarding freshwater tanks, there's a lot of bad info mixed in with the good, I presume it's the same with salt.
