Man, you have now enough information that will teach you how to set up and smoke the hookah....
I suggest you to get your own sisha now and try!!!! Once, twice.... As the time comes by, you will have enough experience to decide if you should use two, three coals...remember: Each hookah is quite unique...
Let me know if I can help you still!
