First off, Welcome to AquariumAdvice.com...
I wouldn't say your in big trouble, but it will not be easy to keep the coralline happy with 1watt/gal
. It also really depends on how high the tank really is.
The light you have now would do fine to help keep coralline alive but not much more than that, so it's not a huge concern as yet. It really depends on what you want this tank to be .FOWLR
or reef. If a reef tank, then do not upgrade the lights with just the rock in mind. You first need to decide what if any corals you wish to keep before lighting should be purchased as that will moreso determine your tanks needs than the rock. The coralline can always easily be re-seeded later.
I would also suggest slowing down on the addition. LR
and then 5 fish so quickly with tax the natural and artificial filtration. Additions should be made serveral weeks to a month apart. I would suggest posting some more detail about your tank and the set up as well.

Sorry other than assuming vitolights are NO fluor's, I have no clue what they are.
