Warning: you will become more addicted to the salt side than you did fresh. Also instead of 4 tests.. there's 7 lol so your ocd can go into overdrive if you get really into it. Pick out the corals you like FIRST. Then you can pickup the lights and powerheads you'll need... since you're going reef I wouldn't recommend putting this in your kids room because you'll need to ocd this one pretty badly because of the size of the tank.

KH is more important than Calcium IMO, so is Magnesium.....

Refractometer

Salt
White sand I have some with coral bits in it, makes a little more organic
Some live rock, though if you haven't started to place anything in, cycling for live rock works as well, protein skimmers are nice to get rid of some garbage but I only bought it for my seahorses, and testing kit, as well as maybe a thermometer to place in the tank to watch the regulated temperature.

For fish I think green chromis would be a nice fish...they're small, peaceful and omnivores and like tanks temperatures anywhere from 72-78 degrees Fahrenheit and salinity of 1.020-1.025 and are very friendly with clownfish and butterflies (may be too big for the tank though)
Peppermint shrimp, glass shrimp, nassarius, bumblebee snails, and agree with gboy, that the fire shrimp would be cool and safe! The fan worm is also a nice friend of the tank

Good luck, and I hope everything goes well!
