Actually, that was my thought as well. New setup it doesn't matter where the work is done. At that point it is all about convenience. If it is an established tank then it is a bit more different and not plug and play and a little more involved.

Thank you rvareef, Short pump mall is little too far from where I live (I'm in Loudoun County VA, but thank you very much though for the invitation

This is my first 125 G. I am running 2x Marineland c360 canisters with no sump. Also I am new to the hobby and kind like swimming around (like a fish!) trying to learn more...

No, I haven't added the dry rocks yet (still curing them)

Actually you are absolutely right about adding a clown tang to 3 weeks old tank, it's not doing well as of 2 days ago, I noticed some black dots on his body and after a search I found out that called ick - Trying to find a cure for it...

Always thank you for the help

no problem, they are advanced fish that need a mature setup, not a good one for beginners, I'd call the shop youd got it from and ask if they will take it back or if you want to make the trip here I can try and resuce him and give you coral frags for your time
