Cure in SW, FW and SW bacteria are different.
No skimmer.
You want to add two pieces of cured LR into the larger tank after 2 weeks? Are you planning on moving all of your old tank and critters into the 180?
I think I am confused. Explain what you are planning on doing...
You really don't need light for the bin.

I am planning to move everybody LR, corals and fish to the 180g. Currently I do not have enough large pieces of LR to take advantage of the NEW width and height of the tank. Larger pieces of base rock along with what I have which are smaller pieces should make an excellent aquascape.
Since I want to stay on budget I thought why not base rock.
But base rock has to be purchased from a reputable dealer.
Hence all my questions.
Hope this clarifies......

Ok, you can move all the old stuff from your old tank to the new one right away, since you aren't adding to the bioload. I would suggest replacing the old sand with new and then use a cup or 2 from the old tank to help seed the new sand.
Cure the BR in the bin, add the LR from your old tank to the new one.
I generally do about 75% BR to 25% LR.
