75 gallon freshwater to saltwater conversion

I was wondering if I could get some advice on setting up a saltwater tank.
I have
2 55 gallon HOB filters
aqueon led lighting
Adequate air pump
Sand substrate in the bottom.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated

Do you have a sump running? You will need a couple of powerheads for water movement, and I would add some live reef sand to the substrate you already have. Or you can go without substrate all together unless your going to stock it with fish/inverts that need it.
You want about 1 1/2 - 2 lbs of live rock per gallon...unless you're going to do a fish only. The live rock helps with filtration.
