Yes you could do that, but once the Fowlr is stable, and is established to a point, you could consider upgrading. The rubble would do great, and the bio-wheel with act as a another source to collect beneficial bacteria. What size tank is it?

Well since you are only going to have FOWLR for now, go with some PC or VHO T5 Bulbs. Also, depending on what kind of corals you want can determine the wattage.

Hey, little mistake here, but I gave you false info on the bio-wheel. It could possibly nitrate build-up in the tank (Which is not the best in reef setups), you might want to remove it for extra precaution.
