75 gallon saltwater setup

So im going to convert my 75 gallon freshwater tank to a saltwater setup.

equipment already recieved
-jbj auto top off
-aqualine sump kit with skimmer (rio 1700 for return pump)
-21 w par30 and gooseneck for sump from coral compulsion
-reef keeper elite (ph probe,temp probe, two float valves for secondary safety on ato)
-mj900 for ato tank
-2 mj1200 for water circulation (will upgrade in the future)
-50lbs of reefsaver rock from BRS
-i have the 48 inch photon on order from reef breeders



im going with hang on overflow box and i realize that my sump is pretty small (12gallons). But i was going to go with no sump until i found this turn key kit for 319 dollars (return pump, all plumping, overflow box, and skimmer)

wish me luck!

I like the rock work. I'm gonna be setting up a 75 in about a month or two, still in the planning process.

It's going to have a break in period I know I was told to wait till your on your 3rd week of cycling to turn it on. Also those light look bright I had my mind set on the Aqua Illumination sols but after seeing them I may get it save some $.
