Hi Joeyaq - Welcome to Reef Frontiers!!! .....and welcome to your newest addiction .
As WaterDogs said, you can't go wrong with a good book. "The Conscientious Marine Aquarist" by Fenner is a great book. Also, here is a link to the resource library's: Start-up, tank moving, and general research. Read, ask questions, read, ask questions....(as a friend of mine says...) shampoo, rinse, and repeat . There is a forum called Great Threads, also in the resource library, that can be informative, too. Patience is important in the hobby, as well as planning. Take a look around member's photo galleries and get a feel for what you like and don't like.
