Lighting Advice Needed

Greetings All- My SW tank is just starting. The LR should be here in a few days and I plan on having a few small puffers and one or two clown fish.

What type of lighting do I need since I will/cannot have certain types of live coral with the puffer! Also at what point do I install the light? Do i need it while the LR is just in the tank and it is cycling?

What sized tank do you have? You can add the lights any time.
Age is relative, you are only as old as you act....of course, this works in reverse....

Questions loved, heeded advice greatly appreciated!
