Alright so I want to start a saltwater tank. I want to start out pretty cheap

Alright so I want to start a saltwater tank. I want to start out pretty cheap. I am actually doing this more for experience so I can possibly use it on job. I need to know everything. I am a freshie to the core so this is new to me.
Just a few questions to start:
1. What tank? I was considering a 15 column or a 26 bowfront. Do I need overflow?
2. What filters and just in general equipment do I need?
3. Is RO water a must?
4. What light (I want some corals)

Anything else yall can think of that would help a newbie out would be appreciated. I am not going to be buying for a littkle while but I need to know what I need to save up
Thanks and God bless!
