That big piece on top looks very dense. Are you sure it's ocean rock?

I think you need more rock before you put livestock in. Live rock is the necessary surface area for bacteria to grow to sustain the tank.
At least keep the stocking very low until you get more rock.

I got a question if you don't mind. My tank makes this sound like it filled up in the overflow box and the releases it all at once and makes a gurgling sound pretty loud any ideas

Do you have a durso standpipe? If there is a hole in the top of the cap on the pipe, you can run a piece of airline tubing down that and adjust it up and down until you find the sweet spot. That usually makes it quiet.
