Welcome Aboard!

First thing I'd suggest is reading about cycling the tank fishless, so you have it ready for fishies down the road. Here's a link that will help you out: Fishless Cycling For Dummies

lol, yep patience is a valuable tool. If you're thinking of plants in the tank, you can always add them now. It gives you something to play with while waiting to finish cycling and IMO/E, can actually help speed up that cycling process.
