10kg of coral sand
I would still try to find out if it is CC or sand. Can you post a pic?

invertabreas? like anemoa?
There are several invets that will work in your tank. Reef crabs, all kinds of shrimp and snails. Anemones are a different sory. They require intense light, very mature tanks and are difficult to keep. Not for a young tank. When you start to research corals and reef ighting, you can look at anemones to. Have fun in the set up!

Have not seen substrate like that before. Kind of looks like bird seed. Anyways, does ot look like traditional CC so you should be okay.

Put a little vinager on the sand, it should fizz up. That means it is aragonite (not silica) sand - which is good.

No just put a small handfull into a container and pour a little vinegar, it should fizz immediately - good sand. No fizz = potentially bad sand.

The skimmer is not needed if you are strict with frequent water changes, you can add that in a few months or so. It removes organic waste from the water so you have less nitrates. Power filters simply trap waste and if not changed enough, does more harm then good (high nitrates, other bad bacteria). You can run a hob filter along with rock, like lando says it's not needed but you can use it along with lr. I use a hob emporer 400 for media like carbon and filter floss. You may also be able to buy coral rock cheap at a store (dry base rock) and seed it with just a few kgs lr. The system does not have to be too elaborate for 2 percula clowns, imo.
