You only need like 7 things xD

I know there's a link to a step by step thing somewhere I just forgot where it is..

All you need is:

float switch(es)
12V wall transformer
12V/115VAC relay
wire
tubing
a reservoir
and a PH or the Aqua lifter


It's quite simple, when I get the parts I'll post it in my build thread.

Now let me ask you this. At the moment i am on live aquaria drooling over the corals. What kind of light do you think i need for certain corals. I like every coral but i seem to really be attrcated to the LPS, SPS, and polyps. And i like some of the soft coral. What kind of light do i need to support most of these? mostly the LPS and SPS.

Do anemones need special lighting or anything or any special care?

Anemones need strong lighting as do most coral. T5HO will get you by with some and others will need MH. Im not a fan of PC but Ive heard others have had much success with them.
