To start with just fish only... LR, live sand, RODI water, salt mix, power head, heater, thermometer, some sort of light. That's about it to start the most basic tank.

Good lighting, protein skimmer, pump-are you doing a sump under tank? Live sand and rock will help cycle it quicker

IMO start with a good quality heater, swing arm hydrometer, live rock, dry sand, thermometer, test kits, salt and RODI water. For the testing I would test for ammonia, nitrite, nitrate and phosphates to start. For a FOLR lighting is mainly for viewing your fish but most people eventually upgrade, something to keep in mind. A raw shrimp to start your cycle.
