Time is key. Don't rush, it will cause less stress. And the cost of money will be cheaper. Well not cheaper, but spent over time to enjoy the comfort of your tank.

ahh from experience.. id def say try to have an "ultimate" plan for your tank (fowlr or coral,community or aggressive, etc.) this will save you alot of confusion and stress as you piece together your tank

What's the exact fixture, bulbs, watts of bulbs? Also, technically you can keep coral even if you don't have lights, because there are coral that don't require lights, and there are also coral that don't require much light.
