That should work, but I would not have that sponge in there. It will need constant maintenance and it will slow the pods from making it to the display. I wouldn't want any obstacles between that and the display except for the return pump.

So can anybody tell me if the light I already purchased will do the job? From what I've been reading it should Bc pretty good for now until later on down the road when I get more experienced and start adding harder stuff to the tank.

That light should allow you to keep a lot of stuff, however, it's not dimmable and you might have a tough time getting photosynthetic creatures acclimated to it. Also, it doesn't look like you have enough blues opposed to whites, so I don't think you are going to be happy with the color, or coral coloration.
