what do you want a reef tank or fish only ?

if fish only chuck some live rock or base rock in for some hiding spots for fish and fill with saltwater and use that Aqua one protein skimmer and

canister filter

if reef tank with corals get live rock, better skimmer ( the Aqua one protein skimmer is **** for reef tanks) and get a sump/refugium

t5s lights will be fine if running quads
