My setup. With coral...... Not really any tips. Keep your water clean and have sufficient lighting.

Heres a couple of photos of my setup that i just finished.. i have a 65 gallon tank with a 20 Gallon Long sump underneath.. Get the biggest sump you can fit underneath your tank..Youll need a protein skimmer.. Bigger the better on that to.. Double the size your DT if you can..Then the live rock will take care of the biological filtration.. There is a ton of info out there on how to build sumps.. Basically you have a drain/overflow from you DT tank and then a return pump to send the water back up to your DT.. You try to match your overflow rate with your return pump rate.. I built mine a little differently , my baffles are on the return line end and i went with 2 baffles instead of 3 but this will give you an idea
