Question Breeding Saltwater Fish

I would like to begin breeding Salt Water fish. I have bred Freshwater fish, are Saltwater Fish difficult to breed? Are there any Saltwater Fish that are easy to breed that a beginner could start with? What type of equipment would I need, tank size, filters, heaters, skimmers, sumps, etc?

They are a bit harder to breed and the fry are much harder to raise due to their specialized food requirements. Cultivating phyto plankton and rotifers is a must with saltwater fish. The fry also tend to be smaller then what we are used to see with freshwater fish, therefore their food must be that much smaller.
