Need help on my 20 gallon Salt water Aquarium

ok. So i had fresh water tanks for over 10 years and Finally went for a Salt Water. Just bought it from someone i know. Its a 20 gallon tank with a Coralife low watt light. The guy ii got it from had this tank up for like 2 years. I currently only have 2 clown fish and a Pink serpent star fish that lost half of one arm during the move becuase it got cought under a rock. I have some questions and ehre they come..

1) My friend gave me a Commercial bag of "Oceanic Natural Sea Salt Mix" How do i mix this for a normal Salt water aquarium with just Serpent star fish and Clown fish per 5 Gallons of Tap water.( of course getting the stuff that takes toe clorine out of the water)

2) i have a 20 gallon aquarium already set up with fish. Im also putting up a picture so u can see exactly how i have it set up, And do u have any advice how i should set it up. Please save the picture and Draw on it where i should have what and water flow where it should point..
A) Via Aqua Canister filter UTC-3400UV, 581 GPH, 63 watts, and is made for 80-120 Gallon Aquariums.( The Suction is on the right and the water going back into the tank to the left)
B) Maxi-Jet 400---160 GPH Flow (left side and its Grey)
C) Koralia 1-------400 GPH FLOW (left side Black)

3) I cant get Bubbles to come out of the Maxi-jet 400. I have the tube inserted and sticking out the tank and the piece unscrewed. is there any trick to this?

heres the link to both pictures. One normal and One with Lines showing the water Flow that im away ore.. Sry for the 5 year old sqiggly lines lol...
