Here are my tips, invest in auto top off system, good skimmer and if you can a sump (tank under main tank that is your filter). Also a rodi system is a solid investment, rodi is reverse osmosis de-ionized water.

As far as lights go led, way better on the power bill and bulbs last an eternity. Just make sure you ask on here about what lights are ok because a lot of brands claim to be "reef compatible" yet wouldn't suffice as a flashlight let alone grow coral.

There are lots of good ones out there and it's a case of what you want. Radions are top notch and have lots of Bells and whistles, taotronics are cheap and have bare minimum. I personally have pharos LEDs and I like them and they are middle of the road.
