If you are not doing corals right away, then buy a simple fixture. You can always upgrade your lighting when you decide to start adding corals. Don't forget that water quality is more important than light if you are considering corals, and different types of corals require different lighting parameters.

WHat kind of corals would you plan on doing?

Those are all soft corals, or "softies" in the trade. These corals rely more on outside food sources, such as Marine Snow and Oyster Feast. Great beginner corals, and although light isn't vital, it always helps to have a good light source when doing any type of coral.

Before we continue forward, can we see some pictures? We have been doing a 3 page long Q&A session, but after reading this entire thread I don't feel that we have given you much important information. It has just been very random. A picture of the current set up would really give us what we need to give you some guidance.
