New to saltwater

Would anybody be willing to tell me what I would need for a saltwater tank? To get it started?

Well in my tank which is a 55 I only run a skimmer and a lot of live rock. Im getting a phosban reactor as well but thats because im fighting phosphates. Although you could run a sump which I prefered as you get to hide all you equiptment I am planning on adding a sump in the near future
