    The lights look no good. Look around and get some power compacts or something.

    I have no clue yet. My parents want a seahorse BAD, other than that i'm gonna ask for your guys input, read and research, and also let my family put in there choice.
    You don't have to take the coral skeletons. If you like them, keep them. If they are sharp, they may prove hazardous to your fish. Eventually they will probably start growing some algea on them and not give you the white look you have now. It appears the dead coral decor was very popular prior to the discovery of live rock and all it's benefits. IMO, replacing them with some live rock will provide a better look long term with a bunch of beneficial filtration.

    Lots of research would be a great idea. A reference book that I've been using is Marine Fishes: 500+ Essential-To-Know Aquarium Species by Scott W. Michael. You can skim through it and pick out some things that interest you and then you can do further research from there. There is a similar book on inverts called Marine Inverts by Ronald L. Shimek, PhD.

    They do look like regular flourescents which isn't necessarily bad if he is doing fish only. I haven't seen a mention of adding any corals yet. If he does stick with fish only, some power compacts still might not be a bad idea, but it would be for purely aesthetic reasons.

    By all means, continue to ask a lot of questions.

    Just as a thought I was thinking seagrass? Some Clown fish, gobies, and firefish.

    Is there any like corals or those cool looking things.. I've been reading about the anemonies and how they are hard and then inverts and all and hard and soft corals so on and so on...
    My question is since i arleady spent my money on this tank and dont wanna just throw these lights away ill just make sure to get good ones next time.
    Any Corals or any of those cool things i can get that are low light or can survive with my current set up.. Sorry I know its a stupid question but thought i should try and see if a low light coral excisted.

    only mushrooms can half decently survive, if you get 150w+ of 50/50 you have more choice

    looks awesome BTW!

    You'll definitely need a light upgrade if you want most corals (especially anemones).

    However, there are a couple of non-photosynthetic corals that you could try, but they are a bit of work because you have to feed them and since they don't move, you have to make sure you get the food to them. One example is a sun coral. You can find info about it here.

    Some guy that sold me crappy zoos that never opened had those. They are cool to watch and very colorful, the sun coral that is. Probably very hard to keep though.
