From start to finish.

Bioball reactor
55 gallon bowfront tank with stand
Coralife 2 bulb lamp, probably not high output and won't be able to keep coral
A jumble of stuff that appears to be the pieces to a sump. See a return pump, the hosing, a uv filter, and the white box might be an overflow or something...either way, the sump stuff all goes with the bioball reactor.

Would anyone know if I have all the plumbing to set this tank up? I'm not sure what all is needed.

Yea the box with the striped piping is your overflow looks like hang on tank style so pick a spot along the back and set it there it will end up in your Bio ball reactor. The clear line with the large pump attached is your return it will go in your Bio ball reactor not familiar with this type pretty much all the same as far as sumps go. Your black tube is a sterilizer it either goes in you tank either that or it is plumbed in line with your return line can't see well enough to tell so if it has threads and arrows showing flow it is plumbed if it has suction cups it goes in your tank . The small pump is a powerhead either in tank for more flow or use it to mix your salt in buckets

Thanks reef, that small pump is actually for the protein skimmer i found out. I guess it pulls the water into the skimmer
