I am new to this and want to surprise my spouse who has always wanted to have a saltwater tank. I am looking at a few starter kits and I know that yall would have the best info to start one.

Which is best?

As you can see there is quite a price difference. I don't want anything too cheap and one that will last. Any suggestions would help greatly as i can't just walk into the store right now with all the Corona stuff happening.

I would recommend an all in one, but look through our sponsors. They have great tanks available.
I also would look at the items for sale, sometimes you can find a great used setup at a good price. Also check out the local clubs link at the bottom of the forums.

I would join a local club/forum, and look for a used setup on there. You are in Atlanta, so probably lots to choose from.

+1. Try to get some items with the aquarists in your city, I understand that the idea of surprising your spouse is exciting, but you should not forget that if you are going to configure a system you must be well informed and know what you are doing, without a doubt, local help is going to be a good start.

I would highly recommend an all in one aquarium - one with an overflow, plumbing and sump

You also need to decide what kind of tank you want to have (fish only tank or reef), because that will dictate how easy or how hard your learning curve will be. Give us an idea of what you're wanting to do?

And remember...there’s a lot to learn. Take your time.
