New to all of this

Hey guys, I just started putting together all the necessary equipment im going to need to set up my 20 gallon FOWLR tank. I also have a question as to which local stores if any you guys may buy R/O water from. Im having trouble finding any so I think I may have to go with distilled for now until I get a R/O DI unit.
So far I have:
- 20 Gallon tank w/ stock lighting (for now until I decide to add corals)
- Liquid API test kit
- About 10 lbs dry rock (will be buying 10 lbs live rock from LFS)
- Some flakes for food
- HOB filter
- 550 Powerhead
- A 50 watt heater
Suggestions on anything else? Besides a protein skimmer which will come later also.
