Yep, I would run the heater as well. Will take a bit to get the water up to temp anyways so might as well have it going.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

When starting my tank I added sand water then, added salt directly just make sure you know what the mixture of salt to water is. Obviously thats all that I had in my tank was sand water and salt.And turn your air pump on. It needs to airrate. Keep in mind water evaporates and salt does not. Also I suggest testing the salinity regularly.
