Have you checked the photo galleries? There are some wonderful photos of most of the various SW fish...some include identification.

Were you able to see the books in the link?

check out http://liveaquaria.com for fish pictures/information.

Also, check out the user's photo gallery here to see some of the fish and get some ideas also.

I recommend to just read a lot of random threads on this site. You will be amazed at what you need to know to get going and even more to keep it going.

Ahhh...now I recall the question. The photo gallery is the AA photo gallery, which is accessible via the link on the top right.

To make things easier, I've linked it here:

As for your original question, part of it depends on the size of tank you are planning on, but from what I've read, for a smaller tank, the bare minimum would be along the lines of:
1 lb. of live rock per gallon
Sand for substrate
Enough powerheads to provide a flow rate of about 10x the size of tank (that is, about 300 gallons per hour for a 30 gallon tank)
Salt mix
Hydrometer to test salinity
General test kit for ammonia, etc.
Patience

In the future, you would want to consider:
Upgraded lighting to keep corals, etc.
Skimmer (some seem to consider this a necessity; others optional until corals)
RO/DI unit (again, some argue this is a necessity; others not)

Take this response with a grain of salt as I am at the reading stage myself and am planning on setting up a tank, but have not done so yet.

Look at the galleries. You'll see lots of pictures of fish.

Try http://www.aquariumadvice.com/photop...lery.php?cat=2

You could also look at on-line retailer sites.

as far as inhabitants..
http://www.aquariumadvice.com/viewtopic.php?t=61643

as far as equipment needed.. what you will need will depend on what you want to keep, this will take some reaserch.. discusing all the diferent filtration options, reasons they work, advantages, and disadvantages of each would be a large undertaking even for a artical IMO. (and would likely be like writing a book thats already been written..)
