Yes, please feel free to ask questions about setting everything up. I know you are at a disadvantage living far from a local fish store and having to do this all by yourself.

When you get everything working, be sure to allow plenty of time for the tank to cycle. It's a good time for you to pracice with saltwater and testing and just being comfortable with your tank.
