uk native marine tank set up?

im quite interested in setting one of these tanks up, but wanted to know a bit more please.

what equipment do you need? skimmer? powerheads? lighting?

what do you use for a filter? as i take it live rock wont work?

can you use normal salt like mixing for a normal marine tank?

the main bit i know is temp, you need a chiller to keep the temp down to uk sea water.

cheers

have pmed you

fish wise, no idea yet, was down on the south coast the other day and found some lovely nems etc and thought what a great idea if it can be kept. i have a spare 2.5 ft tank doing nothing.

i live not far from the south coast so everything would be from round this area.
