Substrate?

Demasoni, African cichlid, Lake Malawli, 55 gallon, Fluval 405 canister filter...

Will White Crushed Coral work for this this aquarium?

Also, how much should I get?

48"L x 12"W,D x 18"H

Crushed coral will work fine, it will also help to raise pH.

I usually like to have between 1 1/2 to 2 1/2 inches of substrate myself.
