Who gave you this advice? If I was to be asked what do I need for a salt tank the answer would be more like - rock, power heads, ro
water, test kits, a refractometer, sand, light heater, protein skimmer.
No chemicals (if you can avoid it) and stay away from canisters if you can. I run a 55g with no mechanical filtration. Best advice I can give is do plenty of research! So many different ways to set up a salt tank
