All you need is one LR to seed all those, but it will take longer. I think a few smaller pieces (2-3 lbs) or a few big pieces (5-6) should be great. for an 80gallon tank you really want about 80lbs of live rock and 30 doesn't seem like it would be enough unless you wanted only a shallow sand bed. As for when you put your fish in it depends on how quickly you cycle your tank (see nitrogen cycle) but it can take anywhere from 2 weeks to a month and a half before the water is safe enough.
