Question My new 29 gallon bio cube

Hey all, I just set up a new 29 gallon bio cube. It's my second tank attempt (last one was a 14) and I really want this one to work out better than the last! I started cycling it Sunday night and have the following in there:40 lbs arag-alive live sand
25-30 lbs live rock that came with it (seeded?)
The water that was used in it before from previous owner
Koralia pump
Bio cube power head
Bio cube carbon filter
Chemipure elite, filter floss, filter pad all in a box thing in the back compartment

The water testing didn't go so hot today-
Salinity; 1.25
Ph: 7.8
Nitrate: 60
Nitrite: 1ppm
Temp: 76

Do these parameters look normal for a 3day old tank? Is there anything special I should do?
