New setup help

I have read way too much info, and now I am more lost.

Here is what i want. I want a 55 gallon tank on a stand with a sump underneath along with everything else in the stand hidden.

There is really no fish stores where i am except for petsmart.

So I need a drilled tank, hole in bottom right?
Do they sell the tank & stand together, or do most stands come able to receive a hose from the tank.

I am so lost. It will be a saltwater fish only tank.

you usually get the stand with the tank,the tank will need 2 holes,one is the flow down to your sump,the other is the return to your tank.I'm sure there will be plenty online which would deliver.
