Type of lighting for a fish only saltwater?

So I want to make my tank saltwater and I need to know if I need the lights for keeping live rock in the tank?
It will be a fish only tank for the about 2 months when I get the light I need for the live rock. Do I need the good lights with only the fish or can I keep the fish with only a normal lighting for a freshwater tank?

You can keep a Fish only tank with Live Rock using just normal flourescent lighting.
