Without being offensive but if this is how you're feeling now, maybe you should have looked into saltwater more before throwing saltwater into your tank and thinking that's it?
There's really nothing to be annoyed at and if you are, maybe you did make the wrong decision and should have just stayed with freshwater.
On the good side - you're half way there, just cycle your tank and you can start enjoying it, adding more rock, adding fish etc...
You should definitely use a RO
filter though, save algae blooms and such.
What L/H is your power head rated for? You need something like 10x your tank capacity in circulation, not necessarily just from the power head but from other sources too.
Do you have a skimmer running?
Have you looked into setting up a SUMP?
