Ok where should I put the pump for the skimmer. If I put it on the sands won't it suck the sand up? The pic he sent me of when he had it set up looks like it is about the middle of the tank do I put it on a rock or something?

You don't need a check valve on a skimmer. The skimmer pump should be fine just hanging there. I would try to hide it behind the rock though.
