are you planning for just fish only tank or a reef system? from your simple T5 lights looks like just fish tank.
People suggest salifert test kits as a least brand don't go anything lesser. heater is a good to have for sure.

What model of reef octopus are you picking up?

First of all 8500 is a reasonable price only if the lfs uses nbrand new glass. 99.99 percent of the lfs uses second hand glass hence the price difference.
99.99 percent of the lfs does not use polished glass, you can request for a polished edge glass for a reasonable extra cost or could bargain.
Explaining to start a Sw tank is lengthy and complex subject.
Rather one should get basics by reading on the internet and asking queries. Rather than pinpointing tiny miny stuff.
