Im not even gunna touch to topic of lighting but all im gunna say is whatever you kind of light you go with get 6-10 watts per gallon.
Go to this site and type in all the questions you have, then when you get some backround information then ask some specific questions. Its hard to answer your questions cause there so broad.

Good lighting isn't cheap, neither are corals. Dead corals that died in your tank are the most expensive piece of equipment you could ever buy.

This thread is so long and cumbersome I think I've forgotten what the intentions were. If the tank is under 55g a 250w set up would work great. I know of a perfect one right now for $150 complete with actinics. It's one month old a friend is shutting down a tank he just started. In fact he has a beautiful sump for $100. LMK.
