For now, FOWLR. I have a 50/50 PC bulb on it giving me 65W so a little over 3 watts per gallon. Would that be enough for a reef?

I'm fairly new to this hobby myself, but if you are still cycling imo I think it would be better to wait til the cycle is complete before u do a pwc. If I'm not mistaking doing a pwc in the middle of a cycle will slow down the cycling process.

Good start for your tank. I personally would add a few more lbs of LR. Usually about 1.5 to 2 lbs of LR for every gallon of water. Most saltwater aquarist will agree. Just remember with SW aquariums, patience is the key.

3 watts per gallon is a little low for a reef tank depending on what you want in there. You could have some zoo's or shrooms maybe in there.

update

My Baserocks are already showing evidence that they are becoming LR. Here are some pics.
