    It depends what type of coral you want and what size tank it is.
    We're gonna need a lot more info.

    Good start is a tank, a good skimmer, RO water, good salt mix and live rock.

    O yes! Lights:m106: Best thing you can do is figure out what kind of corals you would like. Soft corals being easier than lps and sps. Soft corals can thrive in a low tech sort of setup if that is what you want to do. LPS and SPS need a bit more attention.
