(Why would I need corals on the bottom?)
This comment has me thinking you might be confusing corals (live creatures) with crushed coral (ground up shells and coral skeletons).

Some people like crushed coral at the bottom of their tank because they like the look of it over sand.

i think almost any fish will be ok with the mirror back it will not stay a mirror long with alage growth my kole tang and bicolor blenny do not seem to mind the bicolor would swim up to the mirror and threaten himself and dart back into his rock before it became covered the kole was not in until after the algae so i do not know how she would have reacted.

Is crushed corals a must? Or is it just for looks? Could I add it later if I wanted?

So roughly this would work for my SW tank if I wanted to convert my 40 gallon to one? 2 Powerheads, a SeaClone Protein Skimmer, 80lbs of Rock, and a 4" DSB?

Would I have to have Live Rock? is that a must? If I wanted to get an Anemone later, is Live Rock a must to keep one?

Sorry about all the questions, just trying to learn as much now before I get the 75 Gallon I would moving the inhabitants of the 40 Gallon too.

TIA for all the help.

Crushed Coral is a substrate such as Sand is also.

This sounds good, and I imagine you canceled out the Crushed Coral wanting a 4" DSB?

You do not have to have LR, however, it is beneficial to do so.... Anemone should not be considered for at least a year IMO... LR is not a must to keep one though...

If you are getting a 75 gal tank, and do not have the 40 setup, I would read as much as you can, and get a good understanding of what you are getting into, and wait until you get the 75 to set anything up.....JMO and HTH...
