Thanks a lot for the help guys! but if I have the lights on it will not affect the rock? But this might result in algae growth?

For tanks that are FOWLR (fish only with live rock) you want to do 8-10 hours of light I've read and researched and for reef tanks which seem the way you are going 10-12 hours of light. But with just live rock, it doesn't matter for right now. I stay at 10 hours of light in my tank just to help prevent algae from breaking out on the walls.

So when I have corals in the tank lighting will depend on the type of coral?

I'm guessing research is your best friend when learning to keep them!
