Advice: Borrow books from the library and read as much as you can. Pick your feature fish(could be your most expensive fish) and then pick other fishes that are compatiable with it. Don't start by buying the most expensive fish but rather fishes that are compatiable. You don't need to buy 2's of everything. Sometimes they don't get along with their own kind. Buy used equipments is a good way to save money and speed up setup them.
