I understand where you are at, that's where we were when we started. You could use allot more rock! But I would start by figuring out (on paper) what you want overall, then price it out and start with what you can do. We started with the fish and a few misc. things first then did the Star Polyps which doesn't require to much lighting and will stick with a few soft corals first for this reason. Now we are saving for new lights. But if you plan out what you like and want to try first then you can get a good idea of lighting needs. There's no since in buying more then what you need and vise versa.Plus your bank account will be happier. You can always upgrade later on as your tank progresses.

New pictures, tank is doing well finally and things are starting to grow. We have not only added more rock, coral and fish, we have upgraded to a nice Current Light Fixture with (2) 150watt Halids, (4) 48" T-5's and 18 LED Moon Lights, brings out great coloring and the corals seem to really like it as well.
