So, I have 50lbs of BRS Pukani dry rock, this can be cured during the cycle correct? I'm in no hurry for the cycle to complete, but I'm new to dry rock...

Yep, dry rock will be seeded with bacteria and become "live" over time. Within a few weeks for the bacteria to populate it then a few months til it's all encrusted over like regular live rock. I can't even tell the difference anymore with all my rock. LOL I have maybe 350lbs or more of live rock right now and believe it or not I started with under 50lbs.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Qube nice setup and good job on the plumbing. Nice a clean.
About the vortech' s I would recommend the Mp40's instead of the Mp 10's. You will get more flow with them if you have to much you can always dial them down.
From what I have noticed everyone who gets the mp10's usually upgrades to the mp 40's .
Just my 2 cents

I appreciate that!! I'm still a little ways off from getting the vortechs and I'm still on the fence for that very reason...
