Just run the filter you have on the tank now. It will be fine with live rock.

Please ask anything you need! I may not know the answer to all your questions but I can find it somewhere! For now I would encourage you to read up about cycling a saltwater tank so you are knowledgeable on the process. Since it takes a few weeks you have time to do other research as well!

Sump. You need a well established tank though before you get into reef along with some serious lighting which is costly. It's why I'm just now converting my tank over. I figure for LED's I'm gonna drop anywhere from $350-$400 on the lights alone.

You have to be sure your biological system is established and can handle fluctuations well. Otherwise you will kill the corals and some of them can kill other stuff when they die. If you don't have the right lighting, supplements, water conditions, temp, and know what to feed them...they will die.
