    Sounds like a plan to me. Anyway you can get rid of the crushed coral all together and replace it with sand?

    No problem, just release that the CC could be a part of your algae problem.

    Get your skimmer back up and going. Run carbon changing it out every 48 hours for a week. 1 cup per 20 gallons. Manually remove the algae... Imo.

    Do a search for sand vs. crushed coral, but the main issue is it can trap detritus, food, waste, etc. It requires higher maintenance to keep it clean vs. sand IMO.
