What is more important?

I am slowly turning my 55 into a reef. I have all the fish I want for it and now its time for lighting and rock. I have 60# base rock from hirocks.com and 10# lr (which doesnt look very alive anymore). Currently I have got (2) 15 watt NO, but looking to get (4) 65 watts PC. What should I purchese first? More lr from lr.com or the lighting? TIA

Are you going to get more light AND more LR before putting in coral?

Yeah. It will be at least 1-2 months after I have both light & lr before I add my first corals. I have a 10gal that is ready for corals, so I will add my first corals there. I am going on vacation start of next month so I am waiting till I get back before I purchase any corals.
