you have a big job to tackle making the decisons. That is the hardest part. Take your time and don't rush. You have all teh time in the world, and use it to your advantage.
First off you have to decide what you want to keep in your reef. If you want to do softies and LPS, you don't need MH lights. If you want to do a lot of SPS, Clams, or things like that then MH or lots of T5s with good reflectors is the way to go IMO.
Look on the different forums and ebay for used equipment to help keep the cost of starting your tank down. Or get into a local club, most people in the clubs are more than willing to help out and give advice. Research is the best way to learn.
