First time user need advice

I am a first time Saltwater user. I seen a lot mixed answers online from start up from $200-$800. I want to spend as less as I can to just establish a few clowns, shrimp, some coral and anemones for a 10gal or less. Can you tell me what all I need, best place to shop, any apps or websites for management and care along with comparability.

Thanks

In a 10g youíll want to stick to one clown ime. As for cost that depends on equipment, but if you plan on keepin anemone youíll need pristine water (think ro/di unit and quality reef salt) and intense lighting which will be the most expensive part.

The SPS coral looks like it is an acro. It is too think to be a birds nest.
The other is most likely a mushroom leather.

The sps is montipora digitata. Pretty easy to keep as far as sps go
