    Do you need the high output lighting for the live rock?

    Live rock and FO setups do not require a high output lighting. If/when you decide to put living coral in your tank, you will need to get high output lighting like T-5 or Metal Halides.

    So instead of stocking the fish tommorow, if I went with live rock instead would that be ok to add right away or should I wait on that as well?

    If just saltwater is in the tank, live rock would be fine to add right away to the tank. This will start your cycling process. It varies how long this will last, so you would need to test the water to know when it completes.

    What would be the best method of cycling with live rock? Just let nature take it's course and monitor the ammonia levels?

    If you buy it from an LFS already cured, you just need to let it sit in your tank til Ammonia and Nitrite read 0 and Nitrate reads very little.
