new tank

I got 150 gallon tank with filters , skimmer and chiller. Buti can't buy any marine tank or fish product in my country . Nobody is keeping marine aquirum. Electricity is 12 hrs on and off. So very difficult , i think.
But i really want to keep marine reef.
I imported 150 gallon tank and accessories from china. now it's installed. I got sea water from my friend's fishing boat. I just put in yesterday and running the machine. After everything ok, i have to go to a beach and get the corals and fishes. I don't know what type i can get.

Problem is when i measure the sea water in my tank SG is only 1.016 . I can't but any sea salt( can't buy any related for marine aqurium) . What should i do??? Can i put just table salt to get the desired SG??
Thanks in advance!!
