I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Hmm works for me. It's an article on this website

Stock list and tips for maintaining your SW tank.

Anyways, you'd basically need all that you would for a freshwater tank.

Tank,stand, filter, heater, lights. the you'd need some live and/or base rock, some sand and some other odds and ens like test kits, refractometer, depending on your fish selection a protein skimmer might be in order.

The good news is that you dont need mega expensive lights like for a reef tank.
