Lights or Skimmer First?

Hello all just a quick question? I have a 60 gallon tank that is 3months old. I am about to add some live rock and wonder if it would be ok to add it with only lights and not a skimmer first or should I go with the skimmer fist and then the lights. Lights (Coralife Luna Aqualight Luna Series) or the Aqua C Remora Pro. Or should I just wait till I can get both... I cycled using ground shrimp for the first 2 and a half months but now have 4 dansels and one puffer. Everyone is healthy and water is fine. Taking my time so dont mind waiting for a while. So what do ya think? Much Aloha and Happy Thanksgiving!

Do you have any livestock? If so, go for the skimmer. If not, maybe the lights. What do you have for lighting right now?
