That was my initial plan as well. It's a good one. You get experience with the animals and also don't have to buy more pricey lighting.
The lighting you like would entirely depend on the corals you would like later. If you want to keep some of the easier corals. PC
lighting is just fine. I have it, and everything I put in my tank seems to do fantastically. It's not as good as MH
lighting but it certainly gets the job done.
