Hey i was wondering for the 50/50 plus tek, if you could substitute worm castings or crab shell for oyster shells. Has anyone tried this? Also, with coir, if i were to make bottom layer wet verm, middle substrate, top straight damp coir, would this work? it seems it would from what i've read...

Wait...50/50 plus is: verm/peat oyster shells. The oyster shells just buffer the pH. There is no worm castings that should be used in the 50/50. Castings have nutritional value, which would cause contams to arise!
Crab shell? If its a pH buffer, id say it would be OK, but youd probably want to just play it safe and use peat/verm by itself w/o the buffer, as you wouldnt know how strong crab shells would be.

Yeah you could do that. Id reccomend coir for a bottom layer however cause its less prone to contams. Keep your base layer dryier than the top cause it also harbours contams and bacterial problems.
