That will be a great start. I would wash the 11lb from outside since 3 years is long enough for plenty of nasties to grow on it. Other wise I'd say 40lb for a tank that size is a great start to your cycling. Also when adding more rock later , I would not do a huge amount of rock at once it could case a lil mini cycle for your tank .
