This is my Hello

Hey all I'm kinda new to the aquarium world have always loved them but never really had the $$$ to throw at the hobby. I have had a 20gl for about a year now and I liked the look and once I started looking at fish I started getting really excited about the hobby (I'm sure this sounds familiar to a lot of you out there.) so this year I decided to get a 55gl with my tax return. After spending a lot of time looking, my girlfriend found a beautiful setup on Craigslist 250.00 for everything ( bottom stones, lights, filter, and the little castle.) I have learned a lot in the last 2 weeks that I received the fish tank. and from all places my mom. to little of my knowledge she was angle fish breeder till I was born. any way I'm in love and cant stop looking and researching. I am glad that I found this site and look forward to talking to some of you. below is my set up I have added an air pump the rocks, plants, and all fish. please tell me what you think and any advice you may have for me.

Hey kangster just some advice check everything, even tho I thought I got a great deal it wasnt all it was cracked up to be. What you cant see is the water damage to the bottom of the wooden support. I didnt see this when I bought it it was carred out to my car for me and for good resson if I had seen the damage I would have passed on the deal.
below are the pics that show the damage.
