Moving to saltwater

Have been running a 55 gal African Cichlid tank. It was my 1st. I started if to see if the hobby would be something I was interested in without risking a lot of money in it. Turns out I like it and want to move on to a reef tank. Looking for advice on how to economically set up. I don't have a big budget for it.

How much live rock/ sand would I need? Would my current filter that hangs on the back suffice? How long should I cycle?

If anyone has any good links to sites that could give any info on how do this would be great.
