I have a 12 gallon aquapod with the stock fluorescent lighting. I'll be keeping LPS and softies for the first year. Maybe try a single easy SPS after that.

Should I stick with the current lighting or should I upgrade?

If I should upgrade, I'd like to try a Nicrew light. Should I get this (30 W or 50 W?) or this 30 W? I'm personally leaning towards the second 30 W light. I like the flexible arm, and it seems like it'll be easier to control.
