Kinda newbee intro

Hello All,
This is my first post here. I currently have a 29 gal FOWLR and a new and empty 150 gal Oceanic. I had someone that was gonna help me set it up and plumb into the basement, but he flew the coop; and it looks like I'm doing it myself without much knowledge.
A couple of questions I have: He said to put styro under the tank....I've read different opinions on this??? Should I use flexible pipe or rigid like the store told me to use?? I don't have any idea on setting up the ref, sump, and skimmer. Is there a book or instruction manual around, or someone that can steer me in the right direction? Thanks in advance!
