I mean fish only, fish only with live rock, or a reef system. The cheapest route would be fish only. You would need salt, a refractometer, and Powerhead off the top of my head. Also, what kind of filter are you going to run?

erm.. 50 litre tank? thats only like 15g. Not big enough for salt really... not unless you really know your stuff. Unless your saying 50g long.

13g is plenty for a Clown Fish and some corals, no worries.
