get 2 heaters..this way one id not forced to work as hard adn you alwasy have a back up.
if the sump comes with Bio balls .. dont use them

the sea.. yes that is a good size.
MH's use the icecap ballast..

not sure about the red dragons.. i like the sequence pumps my self

for Ph monitors, pick up a pinpiont set, and maybe a handheld probe to do a quick check..

how deep is the tank? if it is close to 24 inches deep i would jump to the 250w MH's instead..
