10g build first timer

I'm thinking of starting a ten gallon fish only saltwater tank but I need to know what types of filtration I would need and if I would need a pro teen skimmer or not and what type of subtraite I should use

For a tank that size, a protein skimmer is not necessary. Also, the best type of substrate is sand!

I would only go with one fish for a 10 gallon unless it is a very small goby.
