If you're gonna stick with a FOWLR tank, you don't need to get too crazy with the lights. If you want your rock to prosper w/ lots of coraline algae, you'll need to upgrade. Just a quick pointer, you will probably want to convert it to a reef system one day. Keep that in mind when you buy your lighting. I too had planned on starting a FOWLR system and then it took me three whole days to realize I wanted more!!!! This hobby is so addicting and brings me so much joy! Look at some PC fixtures from coralife. I always hear good things about them and they don't cost nearly as much as MH.
