I would toss the crushed coral IMO the worst substraight you can use. This will trap waste making NO3 a issue and you will need to vacuume the surface monthly
LS in a bag IMO is a joke as stated in other posts, tell me how anything can live for any lengh of time in a bag? Like lando says no way to really avoid a cycle. Unless you get a lot of cured LR then you may not get one. In my 55 fowlr I had no cycle with 60 lbs of cured LR.
The only real LS is from the ocean or a LFS that has it in there tanks....
If the sand is cheap or free I would get that and toss the CC and seed the bag sand with real LS from a LFS or other reefer.
