Looking for some advice...

I have a small 30 gal reef tank for the past year and just purchased a used 20 gal long sump box and a used reef octopus extreme 160 skimmer. I am going to set these up with my existing reef tank. What should be done to clean/sterilize this equipment before I hook them up to my system?

You can run it in a vinegar solution if you want (1 part vinegar, 3 parts water). It should basically prevent anything from sneaking into the system. The vinegar will also remove any calcium build up from the pump/skimmer. It is often good to do this every 6-12 months or so.
