Sounds good! Just remember, rock then sand, also, if you add live Rock after the cycle starts it will restart the cycle. And you'll have to do a 25% water change after the cycle is done before adding fish.

What Light Should I get?

Coralife Lunar Aqualight T5 Aquarium Lighting Fixture, 4X24W, 24"

Or the 4Bulb 4x24watt 24" T5HO from Fish need it

The main deference is the LED lights and the Coralife will probably have higher quality bulbs in the fixture. However thats only a guess. moon light is worth about 100$ to me however I really want to make sure I have it thats the one thing I dont enjoy about my FW Planted tank is that majority of the time the lights are off and I dont get to enjoy it.

yeah I think im going to, it seems like a much higher quality light and the 100$ is worth it I think. because getting moon light for the Fishneedit light would cost me like 50$ so really its only a 50 dollar difference for a higher quality product.

Figuring out what to do about the rest of my live rock is that hardest thing to do. I just cant decide what to do. I want to just buy 22lbs of live fiji rock from aquariumadvice and that would be cheap or should I get the 16lbs of Live Nano rock and 10 more lbs of Marco rock giving me 46lbs of rock vs 42lbs from using 22lbs of premium fiji rock and 20 lbs of marco rock. This method will cost about the same price.

You can tell them you want smaller pieces when you order.
