Alright I have a 75 gallon cichlid tank and am down to five fish. I'm thinking about turning it over to saltwater. What do you guys recommend for a fowlr to start and then maybe a reef later?

I can't really comment on the stock (other than puffers).
If you want a total breakdown and re-do, than that may be the easiest way.
If you want to gradually raise the SG .002 per week, you can make the transition also.

There is a danger zone between BW and Full marine where FW & SW beneficial bacteria exist at the same time. Very delicate balance and you'd need to take it very slowly.

Either way, keep us posted :)
