Help me setting up first saltwater tank

Fisharewet

I'm going to be getting a 75 gallon and my wife wants to make it a saltwater tank. I've never had a saltwater tank before I always had freshwater. I was going to go with live rock and fish only do I need anything other than a filter and a heater?

I feel like most users on this forum are freshwater keepers, including me but maybe this article will help you figuring out what you need if you haven’t read it already?

I need help stocking my 75 gallon saltwater tank, i know a lot about freshwater but nothing about saltwater. Some fish I would like to have are
Yellow tang
Copperband butterfly
Bi-color angel
Antenneta Lionfish
Seahorse
I'm aware that these fish are probably not compatible together

I really don't think the seahorse can go with the others.
From what I know they need a more column shaped tank and need special help eating.

As far as I know they aren't begginer fish and the rest of your stocking may be aggressive.

I’m not a saltwater person but I am aware that tangs need a lot of swimming room-have you done research on whether a 75 would give the fish enough space for that? My LFS reccomends 100-125 or something like that minimum.
