New 35 gallon reef

Okay so my nano is going great! Its time for me to start putting more time effort and yes money too into this new setup lol
I will be removing all fw life from the tank
Scrubbing everything down,
Letting it all dry,

Then i plan on using all base rock and just 1 or 2 lbs cured from my nano to cycle the tank with my hob filter, heater, no lights, no powerhead, and a homemade skimmer.

I want to purchase the coralife power compact 36in fixture with 1 96w 50/50 square pin bulb. Mu tank dimensions are 36in long 18 in tall and 15in deep. Will this light be enough for a reef tank? Or should i get the odyssea t5ho 4 bulb fixture with lunar leds, found one on ebay for about 179 bucks with shipping and bulbs
