it's very difficult for a new enthusiast to find accurate information unless you have a mentor or a site like this one. I commend you for joining and sharing your experience with us, as you can see we are all here to help. Most fish from a large chain store will be sick to begin with. Keep the faith, it's really quite easy once you get started correctly.

check craigslist in your area, quite frequently there are very good deals on tanks there,
be sure to wash any used tank to with hot water and very dilute bleach and rinse with a dechlorinator.

I actually found a really great deal on Kijiji, it was a 25 gal with all the rocks and accessories, food, nets, vaccum, filter, conditioner, pretty much a complete working tank with some fish for 100 bucks, I think its a great idea to find a good bargain and pay less to get more!

I got my first tank, a 30 gallon, on for absolutely free. I put out the cost of the filter, heater, etc. and 5 years later, that tank's still running great.

You should also consider joining a local fish club. I received a couple of 10 gallon and one 15 gallon tank that members didn't need anymore for free.
