new 20 gal

Can anyone tell me what all I need to get my tank started? I have filter and tank and I know I need sand, live rock, and a blue light but what else do I need? And what chemicals are needed?

A blue light?

It depends on what type of tank you want to have, if it is FO, FOWLR, or reef. As for chemicals...you shouldn't really need much, if at all. Depends on what you want your tank to be. You should pick up an API master test kit so you can keep track of the levels in your tank. You should also decide if you are going to mix your own or buy saltwater pre mixed. And realy, thats just the start.

Yeah a blue light to give it that marine look and to set it up for eventual coral, but I have no idea what FO and FOWLR is, I'm new to this. And I want to put a purple firefish in with it, what else could go with that?
