I have a 10 gal sitting here and would like to try a nano tank. Is there a list of equipment that I could look at or could someone give me a list? Thanks Dean.

The below links should help with that

Here's what I ran on my 10g when I had it running.
Koralia 1 (equivalent now to the Koralia Nano)
Maxi Jet 1200 (pump on my skimmer)
While a skimmer isn't necessary on a tank this small, it surely can't hurt. Other than improving water quality and adding more flow, the skimmer also adds volume that can make a difference to a tank this small(about 10% of the total volume of the tank).50g African Cichlid Tank ♦ 30g Planted Community Tank ♦ 2g Pico Reef ♦ 45g Hex Goldfish Tank ♦ 10g Planted Betta Tank ♦ 55g Oscar & JD Tank ♦ 40g JD Juveniles Tank

You surely won't regret researching and reading up on saltwater. Its so easy to waste a LOT of money, and time, and fishy lives by trying to do things too cheaply, without some foresight. And there's so many methods and so much equipment out there - you really do need to get a handle on the basics yourself, and then get help on the details and gaps you can't quite understand once you decide where you're going.
Saltwater is quite a different - but awesome - kettle of fish! (lol)
Most of us of AC, I think, lean to live rock filtration, rather than a power filter, so you might want to read up/factor that in as well. Live rock can be quite a cost, unless you are prepared to take the time to allow for seeding dead rock.

I know next to nothing about salt, but I know a buddy of mine had pretty good luck setting up a nano using this forum as a resource: http://www.nano-reef.com/forums. No slight meant to the reefers here, but the more info the better. :)
