Need some thoughts on my aquarium

i am very new to this. It is my first Salt water Aquarium. So i have done some research before my purchases and i came up with the following:

-60 gallon rectangle aquarium ( 48" x 15" x 17")
-Aqua Medic Turboflotor Multi SL 1000
-Hydor Koralia Evolution 1400 circulator pump
-Coralife 48" t5 HO 108 watt lighting
-Retractometer
-300 watt Aqueon Submersible Heater
- Saltwater master test kit

will be getting 60 lbs of both live rock and sand on wednesday for my filtration. is there anything else i would need besides what i have listen above and any suggestion would be greatly appreciated. thank you

ohh, sorry im not familiar with the brand/model. it may be wise to read some reviews on it if you havnt already. a skimmer is an important piece to the puzzle. the rest sounds pretty good.
