New to saltwater tank and have questions

I recently bought a Rea Sea Reefer 170 tank. I put a Eshopps PSK-75 protein skimmer, Koralia 565, Cobalt 150 watt heater and a Sen 350 GPA pump. I put in about 20 lbs of live rock and 30 pounds of live sand. Does any one recommend anything more or see any problems with anything. The help would be greatly appreciated.

Depends on what your going with here, but I'd recommend at least 34lbs of rock, 68lbs if your going with a full blown reef. But for a fish only, you'd be ok with that set up.
Needing:
Water test kit
Refractometer
Lighting?
Whats a SEN 305 GPA Pump? Whats it being used for?

I got the Red Sea water testing kit, should I get a refractometer if I have a hydrometer already? I order a Current marine pro led light. And the pump if the return pump from the sump. I'm going to a small reef tank with fish that is why I only did only 20 pounds of live rock. Click image for larger version

I'd get a Refractometer, as Hydrometers are really notorious for being inaccurate.
