Set up cost. The lights can and will a lot of the times break the bank. I would get LEDs like a radion or a dimmable taotronic led fixture. Or AI SOL.

Open up a thread in hardware and equipment which will probably get you the exact light you'll need

You'll also need salt, hydrometer or Refractometer, base rock and/or live rock, substrate of some sort (sand, crushed coral or you could go bare bottom), a liquid master test kit, and powerhead will get you started cycling, which will take about a month or so. During that time you could research what fish you want to put in there.

A hydrometer measures the saltness in the water should be around 1.025
