Nope just remember to check two three times on measurements cause you may not notice your off until the last couple pieces and then youll have to tear apart sand the seems and start over so thorough plans make for an easy build lol

Equipment wise you could get away with a bare minimum so you filter media unless you decide live rock a return pump which if your building a reef you want 40-50 x water volume so a 10 gallon= 400-500 gph Softies being the low end sps being the high end or you could do a nano circulation pump with a 200 gph return pump to give you two points of water movement and lastly a light... Not much at all for the tank to run on but then you will need a refractometer not a hydrometer because exact measurements are a must on this size a full reef test kit including alk calcium magnesium and phosphates as well with the basics. An ro/Di unit is nice to have but being so small you could get away with store bought water. Other then that you'll just need sand rock coral and inverts lol

I've recently done a 7 gallon pico.
You'll be able to do fish in it, asking as you keep up with the water changes.
