New 30 gallon tank cycle

This is my first post, so be kind, I'm going to start cycling my first saltwater tank in a few weeks and had a few questions. What is the best ratio of live rock vs dry rock? This was a freshwater tank and I have a hob filter rated at 55 gallons, can I use this filter and if I can, would I be able to use the same media? Do I use any lights during the cycle? Also this will be a fowlr tank, any suggestions on lights, I want it to look nice, the only light I have is the standard one bulb light that came with the tank. I don't really plan on using any coral so I don't think I need anything to fancy but I'm sure I will need more than this one light.
