I would get the salt from amazon if possible and get the basic light hood from petsmart. Then you are set. You can alwasy save up for good lights or get them for christmas.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

find one that can. You need some sort of light and let's be honest, you're not going to have lights for several months so I'd invest in a hood with some sort of light.

Or you could get the glass canopy and just hope you can get lights soon. Me, I'd take what I can get for now.

don't worry about the coralline, when I cycled I was at 8ppm ammonia and burnt it all off my rocks but it came back.
